Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri rejects Kejriwal's offer on Delhi Metro

Delhi Metro fare hike: Kejriwal asks chief secretary to call DMRC board's emergency meeting

Kejriwal's reaction came in response to Puri's suggestion to him to give over Rs 3,000 crore annually to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) if he wants to hold the proposed Metro fare hike.

"The Delhi Government is willing to bear half the grant if only a matching grant is provided by the Central Government".

The central government and the Delhi government are 50-50 hold of the DMRC and its equity etc.

Gupta also alleged that the Delhi government was creating "hurdles" in the smooth journey of the Delhi Metro.

"You have stated your views on metro fare hike and the centre has brought out its limitations in the context of current policies and the law in the matter".

Not only this, but Kejriwal also said that from the recent developments, it is evident that the relationship is not one of equal partners since what the Delhi Government proposals are often disposed by the Centre.

The letter said that if Delhi government is keen to prove its abilities, it can take over Delhi metro phase IV for doing so under the new metro policy recently announced by centre; but need to keep DTC in mind; delay in phase IV deprived about 40 lakh people of the benefit of metro services.

He hoped that the spirit of partnership would continue to prevail and a mutually acceptable solution would be found.

"The common man is already reeling under a severe financial burden due to the poor implementation of GST, demonetisation, unprecedented price rise, hike in fuel prices and general economic mismanagement by the Centre", the resolution by Delhi government read.

"Neither the Central Government nor the State Government or even the Board of the Company has legal power to change the recommendations made by the FFC".

Kejriwal has deemed this decision as "anti-people" and said his government is opposed to such a steep fare hike.

The FFC-recommended fare hike, a second in seven months, will come into effect on October 10.

The last revision of fares were undertaken in 2009. This was suggested to AAP government by Union minister Hardeep Singh Puri in his letter to Kejriwal, PTI quoted a source as saying.

Starting Tuesday, Delhi Metro rides will become costlier by a maximum of Rs 10 for those travelling over two kilometres in the city.
