Free travel in buses and metros for women says Aam Aadmi Party ( AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal. At a public meeting in the capital, he announces stating that public transportation will be made free of cost for women for the sake of their safety. There has been encouragement from his party for women to use public transport without fear. “ An announcement in this regard will be made on June 3,” he said.
“Besides other factors like technical and financial feasibility of such a move, the persisting disagreements between the two sides may also play a crucial role in going ahead with the proposal for giving a free ride to women in metro trains, “
The various aspects of the transportation fare would be discussed in a meeting says transport minister Kailash Gahlot. The transport department officials pointed out hindrances on allowing free transportation to women on metros and stated that it could be challenging.
