“On my way to home from office, I travelled in a bus and spoke to women on the free journey given by Delhi government. Everyone had a big smile on their faces and were saying that they will save a lot of money every month. Truly, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has given a unique gift to all the sisters,” she said in a tweet. 

The free ride scheme was announced by Kejriwal for women in buses and metro trains in June.

However, it could not be done for metro trains as the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has sought time to work out plans for its implementation.
