As Delhi Metro resumed operations on Monday, 7 September, after a 169-day-long hiatus, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, AK Garg, Director Operations, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, told news agency ANI that he, too, took the metro.

“I travelled from Malviya Nagar to Rajiv Chowk, today. I am happy to see that the passengers are confident about travelling in Delhi Metro. We have made all arrangements to make travel safe for the commuters.”
