New Delhi : E. Sreedharan, formerly the head of the Delhi Metro and famous as the Metro Man, wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi about the Arvind Kejriwal government’s plans to give free travel to the women . In a letter written on June 10, Sreedharan has asked PM Modi, “Do not agree with Delhi government’s proposal. When the Metro started, it was decided that no one will be allowed concessions for travel .
The decision was welcomed by the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee himself and he himself took his first journey from the Shahdara to Kashmiri Gate in December 2002, taking the ticket. Delhi Metro is a joint venture between the Central Government and the Government of Delhi. No one can take a one-sided decision of granting concession to any part of the society. ”
