Arvind Kejriwal Announced Free Metro For Women !! Here’s How Women Are Reacting !!


Woman in Delhi can soon travel free on public transport, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced today, days after his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was wiped out in all seven Lok Sabha seats in the recent national election.

The move, which is yet to be cleared by the centre, will be launched in three months, said Mr Kejriwal, adding that it would cost the Delhi government Rs. 700 crore this year. On whether he needed to run the plan by the Centre, given Delhi’s partial statehood status, he replied in the negative.

Officers have been given a week to prepare a detailed report after which a proposal will be brought in the cabinet, he said. The Delhi Metro is partly run by the central government.

“Those who want to buy tickets are free to do so, they need not take the subsidy. Several women can afford these modes of transport. Those who can afford it, can buy tickets and forgo subsidy so others could benefit,” he explained.

The Delhi Chief Minister said his government would bear the cost of free rides for women on the Delhi Metro and public buses.

“Delhi is the only government that is honest and is spending your money on facilities and is still running on profit,” Mr Kejriwal said. “Right now our concern is the safety of women. There are questions regarding the metro, but we will let you know how the proposal evolves at every step,” he added.
