  • Yogi Adityanath

The Magenta Line is the latest addition to the Delhi Metro system, which opened 15 years ago and covers more than 200 kilometers (125 miles). "I ignored this and visited all such places", Modi said and pointing that he remained Gujarat CM for almost 20 years. "How unfortunate is that", Modi said.

"Unfortunately there were superstitions associated with Noida and in his own style, Yogi Adityanath has risen above these superstitions and came to Noida".

After visiting the megacity, Yogi Adityanath said that he had ended the "Noida jinx" once and for all and assured people that henceforth, he is visiting the city on a frequent basis. He said the BJP had taken decisions in national interest which would always be given preference over political gains. "Governance can not happen when the dominant thought process begins at "Mera Kya" and ends at 'Mujhe Kya.' We have changed these mindsets".

The prime minister boarded the metro at Botanical Garden, which is the terminal station of the Magenta Line, at 1.05 pm, and alighted at the Okhla Birds Sanctuary following a four- minute ride.


Magenta Line is the third metro line to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2017. "Atal Bihari Vajpayeeji is the "Bharat Marg Vidhata". He focused on futuristic road infrastructure. Today we mark the birthdays of two Bharat Ratnas.

"Not inviting Delhi Chief Minister in the inauguration of Delhi Metro is the insult of citizens of Delhi". Mr Sisodia also tweeted that Mr Kejriwal was not invited to the inauguration of the 12.38-km-long metro section between south Delhi and suburban Noida because the centre was afraid he might publicly demand a rollback of a hike in metro fare.

In the modern scientific world there is no place for superstition, the prime minister asserted. He had earlier "dedicated the Kochi Metro to the nation in June, and the Hyderabad Metro in November", a press statement said.
