Delhi Metro to cover Jamia Nagar in Phase III

The residents of Jamia Nagar, a locality in South Delhi, and students of Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI), situated in the locality, now have a reason to be happy with the Metro Rail. The Delhi Metro, which is giving final shape to its Phase III, has included more residential, business and academic centers of the capital than originally planned. In the new plan, Metro will touch the central university Jamia Millia also.


It’s important to mention here that there was a widespread sense of dissatisfaction and anger among the residents of Jamia Nagar against the political leadership and the administration, because Delhi Metro had not included the area in its second phase and had connected areas only till Kalkaji Mandir, a locality around 3 kilometers away from Jamia Nagar.

“It’s a good news which will bring both cheer and good hope among the residents of Jamia Nagar towards Shiela Dixit government because we had almost lost hope that this locality will ever be connected to Delhi Metro,” said Mohammad Nurullah, vice- president of Batla House Resident Welfare Association.

Saira Mujtaba, a student of Mass Communication Research Center, JMI, said that Metro connectivity will not only provide convenient transport to the students of JMI but will also add one more attractive aspect to the profile of the historical university.

The local MLA, Mr. Khan criticized the Congress government of Delhi for being “anti-Muslim.” Apparently taking credit for the metro connectivity and expressing skepticism at the same time, he said, “I am not sure if at all they will connect this area with the Delhi Metro in spite of several campaigns which I had started for the purpose.”
