New Delhi: 

Delhi women can soon travel free on public transport, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced today. The move, which is yet to be cleared by the centre, will be launched in three months, he said, and it would cost the Delhi government Rs. 700 crore this year. 

The announcement comes days after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was wiped out in all seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi in the recent national elections.

Officers have been given a week to prepare a detailed report after which a proposal will be brought in the cabinet, Mr Kejriwal said. The BJP questioned the proposal and asked if the city has enough resources to fulfill the promise.

Here are the Highlights on Arvind Kejriwal's proposal on free transport for women

"I don't think he is planning to implement it. He has asked people to first file their suggestion and it is uncertain how much time it will take to collect suggestions. There on he says he will try to implement it in August and September. In addition to that, AAP has earlier indicated to prepone the elections in October," Mr Goel added

"He is trying to mislead the people as elections are underway. His party AAP has lost all seven seats in the 17th Lok Sabha elections and Assembly polls are underway. He is doing just for the elections," BJP leader Vijay Goel

The BJP scoffed at Mr Kejriwal's announcement. "Now such announcements will keep coming from the ghoshna mantra (announcement chief minister). Arvind Kejriwal has lost his mental balance," said Manoj Tiwari, Delhi BJP chief.
