Metro authorities to go ‘car-less’ on Mondays
Top officials of Delhi Metro, the national Capital’s signature public transport utility, have decided to go ‘car free’ every Monday – a move aimed at encouraging more employees of the corporation to adopt the same practice.
This comes days after the Delhi government observed the first ‘car-free day’ on a stretch between the Red Fort and the India Gate, which saw the participation of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, his deputy Manish Sisodia, cabinet ministers, MLAs and other government officers.
“The senior management of DMRC, including its MD Mangu Singh, have decided to dedicate every Monday of the week as ‘car-free day’ and use public transport to commute to and from office,” a metro official said. However, they won’t avail public transport or the metro as of now.
