New Delhi, December 30: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) on Sunday put out a witty tweet describing its growth in the last 10 years. As part of the Internet trend mentioning the ‘Beginning of the decade’ and the ‘End of the decade’, the DMRC posted a collage of fictional Power Rangers characters to inform its commuters about the new metro lines it added to its network over the decade from 2010 to 2019.
The picture shows a Red, Blue and Yellow Power Ranger, depicting there were only three full-fledged lines — the Red Line, the Blue Line and the Yellow Line, in the beginning. The other photo which states, ‘Ending of the decade’ shows a team of Power Rangers of different colours — red, blue, grey, green, pink and yellow. The second image shows that the metro operator came up with nine different lines on its network. Delhi Metro, Bus Travel To Be Free of Cost For Women, Says Arvind Kejriwal.
