No dearth of buses in Delhi soon, CM assures Delhiites
New Delhi: Two days after taking oath as Chief Minister for a third consecutive term, Arvind Kejriwal assured that there would be no dearth of buses in the national capital soon.
One month before Assembly elections, Kejriwal had promised for more than 11,000 buses in the city. Expansion of the metro network to over 500 km was also one of the poll promises made by the AAP. It said that the city's metro network would be made the world's largest.
“It did take time. But finally we were able to overcome all obstacles. So, buses have started arriving. I can assure all Delhiites, soon there won't be any dearth of buses”, AAP chief Kejriwal tweeted this morning.
In the tweet, he also shared a news report that said that the public bus fleet crossed the 6,000 marks in the city for the first time in 10 years under the AAP government.
Women are being given pink tickets in over 55,000 Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) and cluster buses to avail the free-ride scheme, in the national capital which started on Bhai Dhooj, last year.
