PM Modi takes a driverless Metro ride on Magenta Line

Noida (U.P.), Dec 25 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday hailed the contribution of 22 crore Uttar Pradesh residents in bringing his Government at the Centre.

In the city to inaugurate the Metro's Magenta line, Modi pointed to the saffron robed Adityanath and said that looking at his dress, the CM appeared to be superstitious, but had actually shown that he had the courage to break superstitions.

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.

Aditynath said that in the nine months of his rule, he was taking decisions without any partisan attitude or self interest. Noting that former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji took a ride on the Delhi Metro in December 2002, Shri Narendra Modi said that since then, the metro network in the National Capital Region has expanded considerably.

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. Driven by blind faith and superstition, leaders never went to places for decades.

UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath. I was clear I would go to all those places in my first year itself.

He added the Uttar Pradesh Government would soon bring new metro lines in Kanpur and Agra as well. "There were superstitions associated with Noida and in his own style, Yogi Adityanath Ji rose above them and came to Noida".

Prime Minister Modi, along with Adityanath, also travelled on a patch of the new route - from Noida to the Okhla Bird Sanctuary station.

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