DELHI: CPI(M) Welcomes Free Travel for Women

THE CPI(M), Delhi state committee, in a statement issued on June 4, has welcomed the decision of the Delhi state government to provide free travel for women in the metro and state run buses. This will especially provide welcome relief to lakhs of women working in the unorganised sector who are deprived of even minimum wages.    

The state government should extend benefits of the above scheme to male workers in the unorganised sector as well as to senior citizens. Similarly school and college students should be exempt from paying any fare in both the metro and buses, the statement said.
