Metro train project for Agra, Kanpur in pipeline, says UP CM

Yogi Adityanath

Prime Minister, Narendra Modi unveiling the plaque to mark the inauguration of Botanical Garden-Kalkaji Metro Line at Botanical Garden, in Noida, Uttar Pradesh on Monday.

The stretch, which will ferry approximately 3.6 lakh commuters every day and help connect Uttar Pradesh's Noida with Faridabad in Haryana through the Violet Line (Escorts Mujesar-Kashmere Gate), was inaugurated by the Prime Minister around 5 p.m. on Monday.

Those who entertain such superstitions have no right to be the chief minister, Modi said here.

We live in an era in which connectivity is all-important, he said, adding that just inaugurated metro line would serve not just the present, but also future generations. We said we wanted to be the Government that removes laws that are obsolete.

Eric Schmidt is stepping down as Alphabet's Executive Chairman
The longtime executive will transition to becoming a technical advisor at the company's regular board meeting in January. Rather than directly replace Schmidt, the company said it expects the board to appoint a nonexecutive chairman.

Adityanath visited Noida twice in three days rubbishing a widely believed myth in UP's political and bureaucratic circles that a chief minister visiting Noida would face problems retaining his or her post. I was clear I would go to all those places in my first year itself. "Unfortunately, there were superstitions associated with Noida and in his own style, Yogi Adityanath has risen above these superstitions and has come to Noida", he added.

Speaking at the inaugural ceremony of the metro line in Noida, the chief minister said, "This step to inaugurate Metro's magenta line will prove to be a milestone towards realising the dreams of development for the Noida and the Greater Noida region". Today is the birth anniversary of both the renowned persons. Also seen are Uttar Pradesh governor, Ram Naik, Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath and h, the Minister of State for Culture (I/C) and Environment, Forest & Climate Change, Dr. Mahesh Sharma.

The other end of the line, for now, will be south Delhi's Kalkaji Mandir.

For better crowd management, all stations will have Platform Screening Doors which are installed ahead of the Metro coach gates.
