Will take stringent action against DM Chief Magnu Singh, warns AAP Government”

In the run up to a proposed hike in Delhi Metro fares, scheduled for October 10, the Delhi government on Friday warned Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) chief Mangu Singh of strict action if the public transport entity went ahead with the increase in ticket prices.

Mr. Gahlot, in a directive to Mr. Kutty said, "It is directed that a meeting of all government nominated directors including the DMRCs MD, be convened by you with a view to direct them to aggressively put up the stand of Delhi government against the proposed fare hike".

The decision was taken in a meeting convened by the chief minister and attended by deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, transport minister Kailash Gehlot, chief secretary M.M. Kutty, principal secretary (finance) S.N. Sahai, transport commissioner Varsha Joshi and other senior officials.

According to the Newspaper, Gahlot asked the Chief Secretary to convey to the directors to oppose the hike "aggressively".The State government nominates five members to the Board, the chairperson of which is the managing director of the DMRC. "If at any time, it is felt by the government of National Capital Territory (NCT) that its views are not being presented in the right perspective, the government shall be constrained to act as per the prevalent and applicable rules and regulations", Gahlot's letter said.

"Further in the month of August this year, the metro ridership showed a decrease of 5% as compared to an increase of 8% in the month of August for the previous two years", it said. The AAP government is opposed to the hike by the DMRC. The chief minister has termed the move "anti-people".

Later, Gahlot had met Singh and asked that the proposed hike be put on hold till the Delhi government completes an inquiry in the matter.

The Centre and Delhi government have a share of 50 per cent each in the DMRC.

The Delhi Assembly will also meet on 9 October to discuss the proposed hike and pass a resolution against it.
