Delhi Congress to take Save Metro Rath through city tomorrow

A large number of daily commuters in Delhi metro are women

The party has modified a bus as a Save Metro Rath and will take it to various metro stations to protest the hike in fare.

The Delhi unit of the Congress party has made a decision to stage protests outside metro stations in the city tomorrow against the recent increase in its fare. Mr. Puri had then said the Delhi government would have to bear all the losses.

As part of the two-phase revision of Metro fares, recommended by the Fare Fixation Committee, the fare would remain Rs 10 for the first five km, but will subsequently increase by Rs 10 in each slab, going up to a maximum of Rs 60.

"I can not recall a single tariff hike of over 100 per cent for any public service in sectors such as transport, electricity and water".

The new fare that became effective earlier this month was the second hike this year. That union minister Hardeep Puri suggested that the metro's operational losses must be borne "solely by the Delhi government", Mr Kejriwal said, only establishes the "absurdity" of the prevailing arrangement.

Referring to that, Mr. Kejriwal wrote: "This is truly a odd proposition".

The DMRC had gone ahead with the fare hike despite the AAP government's strident opposition. The biggest gathering of party volunteers was reported outside Vishwavidyalaya metro station where senior AAP leader and Delhi convener Gopal Rai led the agitation.

According to the Newspaper, We are against this decision and want a rollback", said Kushal Singh, 35, a teacher from Nehru Nagar.A retired government employee, Ashish Kumar Bhatacharya, 64, who also joined the protestors, accused the Centre of burning a hole in the common man's pockets by increasing the fares."We are already hit by inflation and new tax regimes.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday demanded that the Centre institute an independent inquiry into Delhi Metro's decision to hike fares and raised questions about the latter's accountability.

The new development by the Delhi government comes just a day after the DMRC confirmed the fare hike overriding Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's relentlessness to it.
