He said the Congress will move the court if the Aam Aadmi Party government failed to do so.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corp (DMRC) hiked the fares from 10 October, the second this year after the May hike, despite opposition from the Delhi government and other quarters.

Taking a dig at Kejriwal, Maken said: "Kejriwal has enough money to pay lawyers and on advertisements but why can't he spend some money for the benefit of Metro commuters?"

The Congress leader suggested subsidy by the Delhi government to DMRC to maintain fares within the reach of the common man.
