Battle brewing between AAP and BJP on Delhi Metro fare increase

New Delhi: With AAP protesting against the Delhi Metro fare increase, the BJP on an expected note said that it is Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal’s normal routine of lying to the public by coming up with names such as ‘Satyagraha’.

“Kejriwal considers himself as the owner of Delhi If he would have initiated the ‘Satyagraha’ on the very day when the Metro Fare Fixation Committee held a meeting, then I don’t think this move would have been taken into consideration. It is Kejriwal’s usual way of lying to the public by coming up with made up names,” said BJP president Manoj Tiwari.

 “To ensure the well-being of the public, the Delhi Government could have taken the step when Maharashtra and Gujarat Governments lowered the VAT by 4 percent, but it did not. I was against this Metro fare hike but I was shocked when I got to hear that the AAP itself agreed on this decision in the meeting. If Kejriwal would have been thinking of the welfare of the people then he would have taken a wise step which he did not,” Tiwari further said.
On the other hand of the spectrum, AAP’s Delhi unit convener Gopal Rai alleged that the decision to raise tariffs was taken to “benefit” radio cab operators.
