Long queues of commuters are seen outside many major metro stations of Delhi in the morning and evening. Because of this social distancing rules are being violated. A delegation of Chamber of Trade and Industry (CTI) met Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) Managing Director Mangu Singh at Metro Bhawan on Friday with several suggestions regarding prevention of Kovid infection.
CTI chairman Brijesh Goyal and general secretary Vishnu Bhargava told that a memorandum has been handed over to the MD of Metro on behalf of CTI. It has been demanded that there should be separate entry and exit gates at the metro station. All entry-exit gates should be opened at major stations like Chandni Chowk, Kashmere Gate, Red Fort, Rajiv Chowk. Traders say that due to the closure of many metro gates, shopkeepers as well as customers are facing problems in reaching the market.
There is also a demand to increase the frequency of metro trains
Along with this, a demand has also been made to increase the frequency of metro trains. So that there are no long lines of passengers at the stations. At present, there is waiting for the train at many metro stations, due to which long lines are formed. Apart from this, sanitization machines are not working at many stations, which were also demanded to be repaired.
Traders, citing the past days, said that on Wednesday too, gates of many metro stations like Kashmere Gate, Rajiv Chowk, Tis Hazari, Red Fort, Mandi House, Janpath, Central Secretariat, New Delhi, Bhikaji Cama Place, Rohini, Rithala etc. were closed. Due to which common people and businessmen suffered a lot. The CTI says that due to the problems being faced in the metro train, most of the people have now started going to the office or shop by car, due to which the problem of traffic jam has arisen on the roads. Apart from this, there has also been a problem of parking in markets like Kashmere Gate, Chandni Chowk, Chawri Bazar, Sadar Bazar, Bhagirath Place, Khari Baoli, Kamla Nagar, Nehru Place, Sarojini Nagar, Connaught Place etc.
