Not inviting Kejriwal to Magenta Line launch insult to Delhiites: Sisodia

The train will stop at 9 stations on the line: Kalkaji Mandir, Okhla NIC, Sukhdev Vihar, Jamia Milia Islamia, Okhla Vihar, Jasola Vihar - Shaheen Bagh, Kalindi Kunj, Okhla Bird Sanctuary, Botanical Garden. The Prime Minister congratulated UP CM Yogi Adityanath for his focus on "good governance" and taking UP to "new heights". But it is Adityanath who has done what CMs of UP did not do - he has come to Noida.

Modi inaugurated a stretch of the new Magenta line of the Delhi Metro. "Faith is important but blind faith is not desirable". Earlier, a senior official in the CM's office had confirmed that Kejriwal had not been extended an invitation.

Those who had hiked the metro fares were "scared" of the AAP supremo, Sisodia said. In 2002, when India started the first metro operations, former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the first passenger, he said.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation did not comment on the matter, making it clear that it had nothing to do with the programme. This was a historic moment.

At the inauguration, PM Modi was also accompanied by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

The train reduces the metro travel time from 52 minutes to 19 minutes and also cuts down the journey cost from Rs 50 to Rs 30. PM Narendra Modi stressed on the importance of connectivity and how it lays the foundation for our future generations. "In 2022, when we mark 75 years of freedom, I dream that we live in an India in which our petrol imports reduce". Calling for weighing developmental systems in terms of benefits to people instead of politicising them, he hoped that many private auto users will migrate to the metro system by contributing to this cause and take pride in stating that they travel in metro, driving for mass transit systems, multimodal transport systems. The country's gross petroleum imports in value terms increased 12 per cent to $7.4 billion in August. "Cargo handling is growing by 11 per cent. Production of renewable energy (solar, hydro, wind, nuclear) has doubled".

The Magenta Line has automated platform screen doors at every station, set to open only when trains arrive at the platform. "This step will prove to be a milestone towards realizing the dreams of development for Noida and Greater Noida region", he said.
