Another thing I forgot to add is about increasing the frequency all these AC trains and Humsafar(BJP's own pet project) are Weekly and bi weekly since the beginning. There are path constrains and no slots only for existing trains but path and slots are available for vande bharat and nishikant dubey's trains from JSME

Even if they increase the frequency of already existing AC Exp and Humsafar Exp that alone would be 100 times better than this destructive rake standardization

All are done for craze & publicity. Humsafar & Antyodaya are gone concept for that.
So now it's time for VB so no point in increasing the frequency of older services.
Also path problem is real. SECR is the recent example how not to operate pax service.
Indirectly asking lower class people don't travel by train or upgrade yourself to traveling in AC
