After two years of price hike on metro fares, members of National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) demand for concessions of fares exclusively for Delhi University students.
On Monday, around 10-15 members of the NSUI allegedly jumped on the track on the tracks at the Vishwavidyalaya station, interrupting metro service. Many were seen raising anti-Modi and anti-Kejriwal slogans.
On the other hand, Ahmedabad got its first ever metro, later that day. While PM Modi inaugurated the Ahmedabad metro, members of NSUI in Delhi, have held the PM responsible for increased fares. Akshay Lakra of NSUI said,
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi is going to inaugurate metro in Ahmedabad today, Delhi Metro is the costliest under the BJP tenure.”
It is worth noting that this is not the first time that the NSUI has interfered with metro services. A similar event took place in October 2017.
However, metro service was soon resumed on the entire Yellow Line. Almost 13 protestors were arrested and brought to Kashmiri Gate Police Station.
