Delhi's ruling Aam Aadmi Party will hold a "Satyagraha" in national capital from Wednesday against the hike in Delhi Metro fares - the second this year. On Friday, AAP would gherao Nirman Bhawan where the Union urban development ministry is located.

"The fare hike is disappointing as it will hit the common man and students", said BJP-SAD MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa, participating in a calling attention motion on the Metro fare hike in the Assembly today.

Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia alleged that the metro fare hike would only benefit commercial cab operators like Ola and Uber, as with the metro becoming more expensive, commuters would opt for cheaper methods of transport. He said hiked fares would impact ridership directly.
