Students part of All India Students Association (AISA) have been protesting against the metro fare hike for the last few weeks and today they decided to meet the Chief Minister of Delhi,Mr Arvind Kejriwal.
Kawalpreet Kaur,the AISA supremo in Delhi University did a Facebook live session after the meeting with Arvind Kejriwal which yielded a positive response on many fronts.
Though the metro fare hike hasn’t happened,the AAP leader agreed to accept many of the demands raised by protesting students.Kejriwal agreed to make the concessional pass valid on AC buses too which till now were valid only on Non AC buses.The students had to wait for hours for a Non AC bus to arrive because of this discrimination.The validity of bus passes which was 6 months earlier but was later changed to 4 months has now again been reversed to 6 months.
University special buses which were run till few years back in the campus will make a come back in the next 6 months.U special buses were also one of the demands raised by NSUI activists.
Kejriwal also extended his support to the protesting students on the issue of metro fare hike but since its a matter concerning centre & state both,no decision was taken on this particular issue.
Kawalpreet in her live session mentioned that the protest will soon head towards Race Course which houses the Prime Minister since the decision on metro fare hike would be taken by the centre.
