“As per the documents provided by the DMRC it shows that the officials who are representing the Delhi government have not been attending meetings. As per the documents in the financial year 2015-16 of the eight meeting held of the Audit committee at DMRC , Principal Secretary Sanjeev Sahai was present only at one meeting, similarly in the audit committee for 2016-17 of the four meetings held till date officials representing the Delhi government have remained absent in all four” said Anupam, spokesperson of Swaraj India party.  

Further the party stated that both Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is just playing politics and trying to befool people by protesting, as they were in the decision making process  since the beginning.

“As the 50 percent of DMRC is governed the Delhi government and they want to run it more efficiently, why is that their officials are not taking DMRC meetings seriously. We have still not seen any proof by the AAP saying they were opposed to the fare hike, but yes fake public posturing is being done by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal” added Anupam.

Meanwhile, the fare hike issue was discussed at lengths in the Delhi Legislative assembly. The AAP is also planning taking the fight to the doorsteps of the DMRC office by launching city wide protests demanding roll back. Gopal Rai convener of the Delhi unit of the party also stated that the decision to raise the tariff without the consent from the Delhi government was to benefit cab operators.
