Cong slams Kejri over public transport failure

On a day when the AAP government started showcasing its second odd-even scheme, the Congress attacked Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for failure to improve the public transport system, especially the Delhi Transport Corporation whose efficiency dipped to 67 per cent in January.

Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken said with the DTC fleet’s utilisation and route capitalisation going down, private vehicles, including two-wheelers, have gone up in Delhi.

“The very purpose of reducing pollution with the introduction of the odd-even scheme will be defeated if the number of two-wheelers on the roads is not brought down,” he said.

Alleging a record low in the fleet utilisation and route capitalisation by the DTC under the Aam Aadmi Party government, Maken said the Kejriwal government should have improved the DTC services.

“The Delhi Metro, a gift of the Congress government, is not capable of bearing the entire load due to DTC's feet depletion and growing demand for the public transport system,” he said.

“There is criminal negligence on the part of the Kejriwal government in not improving the performance of the DTC, which was clearly evident from the operational statistics,” he said.
