Thursday's shutdown not to affect Delhi Metro
Delhi Metro services, the lifeline of the city, will remain unaffected by the opposition-sponsored nationwide shutdown Thursday, an official said Wednesday.
"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 Thursday to protest against government's decision to hike diesel price and allow FDI in multi-brand retail.
