Delhi: AAP hits streets, launches Metro Kiraya Satyagraha against fare hike

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation increased fares by ₹5 to ₹10 on Tuesday in the second phase of the hike announced in May.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday staged demonstrations outside metro stations across Delhi demanding a rollback of the hike in fares.

In a sarcastically-worded reply to Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri on Thursday, the Chief Minister called the fare hike a "Diwali gift for the people of Delhi duly wrapped in your. letter".

Samsung Electronics shares jump on expected record third-quarter memory chip profit
Revenue likely rose 29.7 percent from a year earlier to 62 trillion won, Samsung said in a regulatory filing. The consumer electronics division will also benefit from strong seasonal demand, he added.

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.

Interestingly, when the Delhi Metro had started its operations on December 25, 2002, the minimum fare was Rs 4 and maximum was Rs 8.

He also remarked on the Centre's rejection of his government's offer to pay half the expenses of the Delhi Metro as absurd, for the arrangement, as he claimed, was like "where all losses are required to be borne by the Delhi government even though it has no say whatsoever in the management of DMRC". Mr. Puri had then said the Delhi government would have to bear all the losses. It indicates that when the decision of hiking the fare was being taken, both the representatives were present there but they did not object.

"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". Between 2 and 5 kms, the fare will be hiked by Rs 5 (from Rs 15 to Rs 20). "It demonstrates a complete lack of compassion for the common man", Mr Kejriwal said. "Wasn't the Delhi CM aware of the metro fare hike", he asked?

The DMRC had gone ahead with the fare hike despite the AAP government's strident opposition. "And now we have to pay almost double the fares in metro if we count both the hikes implemented in six months", he said.The Delhi Metro fares were increased from Tuesday despite strong opposition from the AAP government.
