As is Delhi increasingly in the grip of life taking pollution, similarly is it the victim of massive chain snatching crimes and subsequent assaults, particularly the women being the worst sufferers. In almost every street, nook and corner, parks, market place, cinema houses, residential colonies or in busy areas these dreaded criminals, majority of them being the delinquents below eighteen years have created havoc and the law enforcing agency, the police, already short of staff is extremely complacent to deal with these termites who’d made the lives of Delhi’s women a hell.

Moving around with gold wearings and handy mobiles has become a risky affair with women and college going girls, the most affected. What is more worrisome is that these professional gangs now also operate from expensive and ostentatious marriage ceremonies where they mix themselves wearing facinating attire and clandinely rob the expensive jewellery and cash. Today, out of the fear and risk to one’s life, especially inaction from the side of the police authorities the women have given up wearing gold chains or ornaments n keeping their expensive mobiles intact in purse than hanging around.

Even the family members of the higher ups have been the victims of these snatchers but fortunately they get their stolen ornaments or properties back in record time, thanks to their status and influence. If we go by the Delhi Police records there had been a whopping six fold increase in cases of snatchings compared to previous years and the resolution rate is surprisingly less than 30%.

But now there seems to be a little ray of hope for DELHITES as the Delhi High Court has issued directives to the state government to make the law on chain snatching stricter by amending the panel provisions terming the chain snatching as a very serious matter. It sought a detailed report from the Delhi govt as well and simultaneously issued notices to DP, civic body MCD and the state govt seeking replies.

An enlightened Delhi advocate Prashant Manchanda after feeling concerned have filed a writ petition in the DHC saying that the myriad increase in chain snatching incidents in the capital have made the people, especially the foreign tourists completely insecure.

China is again in the anti India news with papers furnishing front page stories on its one by one anti India actions to keep Indian political leadership in the state of quandary. While the Indian side is still encouraging massive sale of Chinese products in India and boosting economies of both the countries by way of strengthening n boosting Indo China trade relations, expansionist Dragon is busy in creating problems after problems for India.

After Doklam stand off that got settled after more than one and a half month’s hectic parleys at diplomatic level and visit to China on the sidelines of the BRICS summit by the Indian prime minister and the National Security Advisor, China has on the One Belt One Road issue also pressurised India to relent but ultimately failed to make India accept its OBOR expansionist proposal and has now come up with a more disturbing idea of diverting the water of BRAHMAPUTRA through a would be 1000 kilometre tunnel to its countryside and construction of 32 massive dams on its waters.

Though the Brahmaputra river originates from China and Assam and entire North East being on the downstream side would be badly affected if the diversion of water from Brahmaputra to the Chinese side, as being planned by it takes place in the near future. According to reports pouring in the Chinese government has already constituted a team of about 100 scientists and tunnel experts to execute this over ambitious project of diverting the massive flow of Brahmaputra towards its territory in the Tibet side of Indo China border thus badly affecting the huge population of the entire northeastern region and Bangladesh.

China seems to be least concerned about the annoyance and protest of India and Bangladesh including the environmental hazards involved in this highly expensive 1000 kilometre tunnel project. China has already invested about 40 billion US dollar in its CPEC PROJECT in PAKISTAN OCCUPIED Kashmir and build a highway from China to Gwadar in the India region occupied illegally by Pakistan. China is rapidly preparing its military base in POK to pose a direct challenge to India in the eventuality of war with Pakistan. China through its various nature of border disputes with India and anti India stance as above, always tries to keep the former on tenter hooks and insecure position. Whether it’s the issue of membership of UN Security Council or NSG or granting of Pak terrorists Mohd Azhar or Hafeez Sayeed the tag of dreaded International terrorists by UN, China has always opposed India’s stand tooth and nail.

Despite the recent gigantic hike in the fares of the Delhi Metro by DMRC, almost double in just last six months putting the commuters in quandary, the rush of the commuters in Delhi does not seem to be receding and the key metro stations like Rajiv Chowk, Gurugram, Dwarka and Badli full of commuters.

It’s not that the commuters are happy or satisfied with the arbitrary enhancement in fares but since they don’t have any alternate mode of transport to cope with the situation, they are constrained to keep on the services of Delhi Metro. About thirty lakh commuters avail the Delhi Metro Rail services which include large numbers of students, youths, women, senior citizens, traders and office going – private and government employees.

There is no doubt that this arbitrary and authoritarian manifold increase in the fares by DMRC on the recomendation of the Ministry of Urban Development’ s Price Fixation Committee has amounted to committing decoity on the pockets of the poor, underprivileged, marginal, lower and middle class sections of the society who are now paying just double of what they had been paying six months ago.

The maximum ticket which was of Rs 30 to 35 then has now been enhanced to Rs sixty one sided and similarly there is an increase of Rs. 10 on every travel after five kilometres.

Lakhs of students, the office goers and the small n medium traders including labourers, masons, carpenters, technicians, fourth class employees and the people with meagre income are the most affected lot who will now have to spend 20% of his earnings on Delhi Metro Fares every month in addition to other expenses in these hard days of sky rocketing prices of essential commodities. Is it not like committing decoity on the already cash starved pockets of the Delhi Metro commuters especially when the government of NCT of Delhi is ready to bear the fifty percent so called losses of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation that come to around 1500 crores but unfortunately the BJP led NDA political dispensation at the centre is not ready to cooperate and feels happy and satisfied to put the DELHITES in acute financial quandry and disarray.

Isn’t it shocking and highly uncalled for? There is opposition all around and various political parties are on streets criticizing this covertly and overtly anti people stand of the centre and are questioning in repentence that was it for this, that they had voted respected Narendra Modi Sir, who had always promised publicly for bringing the ACCHE DIN. However, despite all this confusion, choas and problems, the Delhi Metro commuters are confronted with, after this arbitrary anti people hike, the DELHI GOVERNMENT of Arvind Kejrival is also to be equally held responsible for this lapse, as not only has its five directors who were members of the Metro rail fares’ revising committe never attended its any meeting except for once during the last two years to oppose these fare hike proposals of the centre.

Not only this but in the context of providing safe, expeditious and swift service of alternative bus transport the Delhi government has miserably failed on this significant front. Currently, the Delhi Transport Corporation is running on a huge loss of around four thousand crores and buses are in extreme short supply.
The CAG report finds that the total loss for the DTC in 2014-2015 was Rs.2,917.75 crore, the highest in the previous five financial years. Except on ring roads majority of the buses have been withdrawn on metro routes and commuters have to wait for hours together to get a bus. The Delhi Transport Corporation services are in total mess with the DTC staff behaving like dictator as the government of Delhi has no control over them. The DTC commuter is the greatest suffering lot.

It’s only because of the collapsing system of public road transport in DELHI that majority of the Delhites are constrained to avail the metro rail services despite 100% increase in fares in just 6 months.

Though the political parties like AAP, BJP and CONGRESS are dropping crocodile tears on METRO FARES today but the fact of the matter is its primarily the DELHI AND NCR commuters who have between the ill concieved politics of manipulations and maneuverability. What do you say friends?
