Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Monday urged the reduction of fares on the Delhi Metro while inaugurating the Lajpat Nagar-Mayur Vihar Pocket 1 corridor.

Stating that comparing the Delhi Metro fares to metro fares of other countries is “unfair”, he said:

“Delhi Metro is a necessity for its residents and not a luxury. The fares of the metro are too high for ordinary commuters. The manner in which Delhi Metro engineering has made the impossible possible, I urge them to consider Delhi’s socio-economic realities and resolve this problem through economic engineering,” he said.

“Today Delhi Metro is not even acknowledging that fares are too high. The day this realisation dawns, they will find a way to reduce it,” he added.
