Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri took the Delhi Metro to the airport after getting stuck in traffic
The former diplomat also tweeted a photo on the train with other commuters. He called the Delhi Metro a "world class asset" and tagged half a score accounts, including that of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Take a look at the tweet here:
A few days back, the union minister said he has advised the Delhi Metro to offer special or discounted fares for students and senior citizens to offset the burden of the fare hike bomb that was dropped on commuters last year.
While on my way to the airport this morning I found myself stuck in the midst of a huge traffic jam near Dhaula Kuan.- Hardeep Singh Puri (@HardeepSPuri) May 22, 2018
Choice was to either miss the flight or hop on to the #Metro; so that's what I did.
Clean, safe & efficient, we have built a truly world class asset. pic.twitter.com/WXWFpIHEg5
