India: Delhi Metro Rail Project Is Not A Solution

Ram Bansal at India In Peril opines that the Delhi Metro Rail “is not going to solve any problems of Delhi but going to make it the most unsafe city in the world.”


  • A friend has commented in support of the Delhi Metro Rail on the post that bringing modernity to India is a must. I do agree. But bringing modernity for the luxuries of a few at cost to the masses is no wisdom. For gross national happiness, uniformity of development and individual economies is a must.

    Absolutely. All forms of development which result in even the minutest element of inequality must be opposed by the intellegensia, who of course are the ultimate arbiters of what is good for the masses.

    My country treats the masses on a much more equal basis and gives no quarter to the bourgeoise capitalist running dogs.

    Yours sincerely

    Kim Jong Il

    This post is quite old and I still wanted to put my comment here so that the author and the people who commented earlier can realize how mistaken they were. Delhi Metro has done for the ordinary people what no other initiative had done till now. I can not even imagine how Delhi would have looked if Metro was not there.
