Delhi Metro's Magenta Line open to public from 5 pm

Mr Adityanath was addressing his first public meeting at Noida after the inauguration of the Metro's Magenta line by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. "Governance can not happen when the dominant thought process begins at "Mera Kya" and ends at 'Mujhe Kya.' We have changed these mindsets".

India's capital launched a metro train with driverless technology Monday, though officials said it would operate with a driver for at least a year or two.

Talking to DNA, Ambrish Kuhar, a government employee and a resident of Noida Sector 37, said the Magenta Line was an answer to their long pending prayers. He took the opportunity to praise work done by Adityanth since taking over as the state Chief Minister and brushed aside doubts about his ability. If anybody thinks that not going to a place will prolong their CM tenure and visiting a place will curtail it, such a person does not deserve to be a Chief Minister, the Prime Minister asserted. Driven by blind faith and superstition, leaders never went to places for decades.

"I ignored this and visited all such places", Modi said and pointing that he remained Gujarat CM for almost 20 years. "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. "I thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi for giving Uttar Pradesh the offering of this new metro line on this occasion", Adityanath further said. Both stations fall in Noida, a suburban town in Uttar Pradesh bordering New Delhi.

The 12.64 km Magenta Line will connect Noida to Kalkaji Mandir and will be extended till Janakpuri by March next year.

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