Sushil Kumar, MD, UPMRC, expressing happiness over the upcoming book fair said that “Books promote culture, instill positive values and ethics in the society. They are the harbinger of positive change. We know that world around us is changing very fast. People wish to read the content on the smart phones. In the current scenario of digital revolution, such events will be instrumental in establishing the culture of reading books amongst the people.
UPMRC is indeed playing a similar role in the society by providing the world class services to the people through its mass transit system. Just like books, UPMRC is the catalyst of positive change in the society. It is providing safe, secure and comfortable travel experience to the people. It is protecting the environment and people by offering emission free journey. Therefore, I would invite people to chose metro as the mode of transport for routine commute and be a part of the cultural and social events organized by us every month at different metro stations”.
