Delhi's ruling party announced that it will hold 'satyagraha' protests at the city's Metro stations from Wednesday. It also said that it will 'gherao' the Urban Development ministry on October 13.

In a poster announcing the 'gherao', the AAP asked the BJP-led government at the Centre to "wake up" and slash the hike. AAP's Delhi unit convenor Gopal Rai alleged that the decision to raise tariffs was taken to "benefit" radio cab operators.

"The increase in the fare is not to shore up the losses, but it appears that the main purpose is to benefit the Ola and Uber (radio cab operators). The fare hike will further congest Delhi and increase pollution," Rai said.

AAP leader Rajesh Gupta compared the post-hike Metro 'safar,' or journey, to the English 'suffer,' to highlight the alleged grief it is causing the people of Delhi.

"The BJP government is turning the Metro 'safar' into the English 'suffer' for the people," he charged.
