In the tweet, Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited shared with Namma Metro commuters “that train services on the Green Line will be available between Nagasandra to Yeshwantpur and Mantri Square to Sampige Road Metro stations”. The reason behind all the chaos among passengers this morning is the technical glitch at Rajajinagar Metro Station.
Passengers Are Terribly Frustrated About The Green Line
All the major waiting while standing amidst huge crowds at metro stations made each and every commuter very frustrated. Not only they had to wait for long and face inconveniences but they got late to reach their destinations too. Namma metro is a preferred mode of transportation for a huge number of commuters every day and such an issue at a peak time made everyone’s experiences terrible.
Commuters are taking to social media platforms to share about the distressing situations and what kind of issues they are facing due to the technical glitch.
In the morning, a few metro trains were running at a very slow speed, shared some Netizens. Hardly people were able to get inside the metros running on the Green Line of the Bengaluru metro due to the intense crowd and chaos.
Here’s what Netizens are sharing online.

This is pathetic. No info at the entrance of stations about interruption, your security team I not sensitized to announce that manually during the security check either. Its a surprise when you reach the platform.

According to the most recent videos surfacing online, the process of shifting the derailed train on the track using a crane began about 2 hours back. Before attempting to do the tracking operation using a crane, the concerned authorities and engineers spent hours shifting the derailed train on the track, according to a report by Asianet Newsable.
Bengalureans had to face many difficulties for the technical snag.
