ABVP protests metro fare hikeMore
The Delhi unit of the Congress party has chose to stage protests outside Metro stations in the city on Friday against the recent increase in its fare.
Notably, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation hiked the fare of Delhi Metro services on Monday to reportedly meet the input costs and to keep providing world class services to the passengers. The protests by the two parties continued for the second day on Thursday with Delhi Congress unveiling a "Save Metro Rath" while AAP members organizing protests outside various metro stations.
However, after the AAP workers refused to leave the place, the police deployed there swung into action and detained many AAP lawmakers including Delhi Social Welfare minister Rajendra Pal Gautam.
"The AAP and the BJP must stop politics on the issues of common man", he said.
After a survey on the benefits and ill effects of the Metre fare hike that was implemented on October 10, the Delhi Commission for Women said that the increase in fare will force commuters to depend on other modes of transportation including women. "Delhi metro has become the lifeline of the people".
He said that when both were against the hike in Metro fare then who took the decision. The metro users have to pay twice more than what they used to pay earlier.
Addressing the protestors, Rai accused the BJP government at the Centre for overnight doubling the Metro fares.
Maken was referring to the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) protest against the Metro fare hike in the national capital.
