Chief Minister on Thursday described the proposed metro fare hike as "anti-people" and said that he has asked his Transport Minister to find a way to stop it.

"Metro fare hike is anti-people. Have asked Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot to find a way in a week to stop this fare hike," tweeted.

The Chief Minister remarks came amid the reports of the Metro's fares set to increase for the second time this year from October.

The last time Metro fares increased were in May. The minimum fare then was hiked from Rs 8 to Rs 10, whereas the maximum fare was hiked from Rs 30 to Rs 50.

The Metro fares were increased following the recommendations of the fourth Fare Fixation Committee.
