A letter in this regard written by the General Secretary Mahaveer Parsad of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Employees Union (DMRCEU) on 14-06-2018 addressed to the Managing Director of DMRC and copy circulated to various other authorities /ministries departments.
Our history is best example that any movement at starting period is faster and it get slower in its middle period and the last of its stage it get more faster than rest of the stage, said DMRC Employees Union.
DMRC management has not given any response till now all. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has achieved a lot even it has largest metro network of India. But without the cooperation of executive employees it could not be came successful. Now it’s time of DMRC to cooperate with employees and resolve two year ongoing disputes. Non- cooperative nature of DMRC has created suspense among people that DMRC is really working for welfare of Public. Huge loss of Rs 4000 crore to DMRC due to irregularities in Delhi Metro Airport express line project has brought new debate among the public, due to which employees has to suffer.
Indefinite strike has greatly influenced the life of Delhi people, approximate 32 lakh people of Delhi are directly or indirectly depend upon Metro services. This is surely going to get affected if their demand not fulfilled or strike continues. In such weather condition this ongoing strike has become additional problem for daily commuters.
