Thursday's shutdown not to affect Delhi Metro

New Delhi Delhi Metro services, the lifeline of the city, will remain unaffected by the opposition-sponsored nationwide shutdown on Thursday, an official said today.

"The Metro services will run as per schedule. There is neither any plan to curtail the services nor any plan for extra trips," a official of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) told IANS.

Opposition parties have called for nationwide shutdown on Thursday to protest against government's decision to hike diesel price and allow FDI in multi-brand retail.
