PM Narendra Modi inaugurates much-awaited Magenta Line of Delhi Metro

PM Narendra Modi inaugurates much-awaited Magenta Line of Delhi Metroā€¯

Earlier, in his speech, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and said the Prime Minister has given a new meaning to politics of this nation. Apart from Kalkaji Mandir, all other stations will be elevated.

The stations on the Magneta Line are Botanical Garden, which also lies on Blue Line, followed by Okhla Bird Sanctuary, Kalindi Kunj, Jasola Vihar-Shaheen Bagh, Okhla Vihar, Jamia Milia Islamia, Sukhdev Vihar, Okhla NSIC and Kalkaji Mandir, which is on the violet line.

The Delhi Metro's magenta line will cut down the travel time from south Delhi to Noida to just 45 minutes.

Once fully operational by March next, the Magenta Line (Botanical Garden-Janakpuri West) will ferry approximately 3.60 lakh commuters every day, Delhi Metro estimates.

Launching a 12-km stretch of Delhi Metro's Magenta Line here, he said governments incur a lot of cost in creating infrastructure but when it is ready it benefits generations to come.

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal was not invited to the launch of Delhi Metro's Magenta Line out of the fear that he might publicly demand a rollback of the fare hike, his deputy Manish Sisodia said on Monday. "Not calling the Delhi chief minister in an inauguration of a Delhi Metro project is an insult of the people of Delhi". "This was a historic moment". We live in an era in which connectivity is all important, the prime minister said. However, Delhi Metro said human error was the cause, with workers forgetting to re-engage the brakes after they had been disengaged for maintenance. I will also travel on the Metro tomorrow (Monday). He said travelling on a metro should be a "prestige issue".
