Commuters travelling on the Yellow Line of the Delhi Metro faced inconvenience today as there was delay in services. The services were affected for over an hour on this route. The reason for the delay is not known. Tweeting about the delay in services, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said, "Yellow Line Update: Delay in services between Sultanpur and Huda City Centre. Normal service on all other lines."
However, there were no reports of delay in services on other lines. Several commuters took to Twitter to vent out their anger. Some even said that it has become a daily routine.
The Yellow Line is one of the busiest lines in the Delhi Metro network, ferrying thousands of passengers from Delhi to neighbouring Gurgaon in Haryana. The route measures almost 49 km and has a total of 37 stations. It connects Samaypur Badli in north Delhi to HUDA City Centre in Gurugram. The stretch connects prominent areas such as Delhi University, New Delhi and Old Delhi railway stations, Connaught Place, INA Market, AIIMS and Hauz Khas to name a few.
In another news, a joint cleanliness drive was organised by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) and DMRC staff at metro stations in the national capital on Wednesday (2nd October) to mark 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. DMRC and CISF members were seen mopping the floors, cleaning token machines and dusting ticket counters of various stations.
Mahatma Gandhi always preached the importance of cleanliness throughout his life. As a mark of respect to Bapu, cleanliness drives at various places were organised.
