Positive response to 'free metro for women' scheme: Sisodia

Positive response to 'free metro for women' scheme: Sisodia

New Delhi, Jun 4 (UNI) Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Tuesday said the Aam Aadmi party government's scheme to provide free metro travel to women is evoking a positive response to people in Delhi.

Taking to twitter, Mr Sisodia, who interacted with women passengers on DTC buses about the Delhi government's proposal to provide free travel for women on the Delhi metro and buses, said,'I spoke with more than 50 women and many men in DTC buses to understand what they feel about 'FreeMetroForWomen' ― Not even one citizen said that it's a bad idea On the contrary, everybody said public transport is more secure for women & it would save them 2-3K rupees per month.'

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government on Monday announced the proposal to introduce free travel for women on Delhi's public transport.

Mr Kejriwal said these measures would improve women's safety in the national capital.

However, the AAP government is yet to clearly state how the decision will be implemented and has invited suggestions from people.
