He had said that the party is not averse to the idea of providing free travel for women in public transport, but Delhi CM cannot deliver something in six months if he couldn’t deliver in 52 months.
“We are not opposing the idea but something that couldn’t even be started in 52 months, how can it be done in 5-6 months? Arvind Kejriwal is only trying to deceive people,” said Tiwari.
Earlier in the day, Kejriwal had announced free travel for women in public transport claiming that the expense will be borne by the Delhi government and further added that the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) was already on board with the proposal.
The total expense of this proposed project to the state exchequer has been tentatively pegged at nearly Rs 1200 crore.
