The Delhi Metro is the longest network that carries around 2.8 million people every day.

As the increased Delhi metro fares came into effect on Tuesday, The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday protested outside almost 60 stations of the Delhi Metro, raising slogans against the recent fare hike.

Maken said, "This street fight between Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Union Urban Development Minister Hardeep Singh Puri will scare away the JBIC (Japanese Loan Agency), which provides loan for the construction of the new phases of the metro. The "fight" between the Delhi Government and the Center is going to put a big question mark on the future of the Phase-IV of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation", Maken said.

"One would have expected that on account of rapidly rising ridership, efficiency improvements and real estate exploitation, metro fares in real terms should have remained constant, if not reduced", he wrote. "Why KK Sharma, being a representative of the Delhi Government, did not object to the decision to raise the metro fares in the Fare Fixation Committee meeting", he asked?", he said.

He further also said that Puri's demand of Rs 3,000 crore from the Delhi Government if it wants the fares not raised is "far-fetched and away from reality".

He also remarked on the Centre's rejection of his government's offer to pay half the expenses of the Delhi Metro as absurd, for the arrangement, as he claimed, was like "where all losses are required to be borne by the Delhi government even though it has no say whatsoever in the management of DMRC". "It shows both did not do their homework". The hike could not have come at a worse time.

After a survey on the benefits and ill effects of the Metre fare hike that was implemented on October 10, the Delhi Commission for Women said that the increase in fare will force commuters to depend on other modes of transportation including women.
