AAP student wing protests Metro fare hike outside Rajiv Chowk station

AAP student wing protests Metro fare hike outside Rajiv Chowk station

Rai, Delhi AAP convenor, also tweeted a poster yesterday announcing that the agitation will be held at all city metro stations at 4 pm today.

For a party that has been vehemently protesting the hike in Delhi metro fares, representatives of the Aam Aadmi Party attended just one out of 15 meetings held by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) Board. "The same politicians who are looting the citizens of their hard-earned money are now pretending to fight for the public and shedding crocodile tears", said the party's chief national spokesperson Anupam.

"Around 61.57% of the women stated that they would face severe issues in managing their household expenses after the fare hike" said the commission.

Gopal Rai, a senior leader of the party, also said that AAP workers will also protest outside the Urban Development Ministry on October 13 against the fare hike.

Puri had informed in his letter, that the alternative to fare hike was to provide DMRC yearly grants-in-aid for the next five years: Rs 3,040 crore, Rs 3,616 crore, Rs 3,318 crore, Rs 3,150 crore and Rs 2,980 crore respectively.

"The increase in the fare is not to shore up the losses, but it appears that the main goal is to benefit Ola and Uber". On Tuesday DMRC has increased the fares of metro despite strong opposition from the AAP led Delhi government.

"In some cases, the fare difference between Metro and shared cab rides would be minimal but people may not mind paying a bit more for cab rides", Bhardwaj told IANS.

The Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), the RSS-student wing, staged a demonstration outside the Metro Bhawan here, demanding the roll back of the hike or the issuance of a metro pass on lines of DTC bus pass for students.

As part of the two phase revision of Metro fares recommended by the Committee, the fare would remain Rs. 10 for the first 2 km, but will subsequently increase by Rs. 10 in each slab, going up to a maximum of Rs. 60.
