Earlier on Monday, the services on Delhi Metro’s Blue Line were disrupted for nearly an hour and a half as services across the corridor were impacted due to a technical snag, officials said.

“Train services between Yamuna Bank and Indraprastha stations of the Blue Line were affected from 6.35 PM to 8 PM to undertake repair work of a broken contact wire (part of OHE or overhead equipment) on the Up Line (going towards Dwarka) due to some external object (bird) hitting the OHE/pantograph of the train,” the DMRC had said in a statement.

अब तो ये रोज रोज का ही हो गया है। विश्व की सबसे बड़ी मेट्रो नेटवर्क का ये हाल है के हर 2 दिन में खराब हो जाती है। कभी ये भी विचार किया कीजिए के जो पूरी तरह से मेट्रो पर निर्भर है वो कैसे जाए। द्वारका से नोएडा इलेक्ट्रॉनिक सिटी तक जाने वाले यात्री कैसे जाएं।
