Kejriwal not invited ??; to the inauguration of Delhi Metro Magenta line by PM Modi
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has not been invited to be part of the inauguration of Botanical Garden (Noida) to Kalkaji (Delhi) metro line.
The metro line is all set to be inaugurated at the hands of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on December 25.
However, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will accompany the Prime Minister to this function and they both will flag off the first train from Botanical Garden.
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is a venture between the Urban Development ministry and the concerned state government. So, while the Noida route received funds from Uttar Pradesh government, an extensive percentage was disposed from Delhi government for the route beyond.
Even if Delhi government is not required to directly send funds for an extended line, there is an equal partnership with center in DMRC for human resources, technical equipments and other logistics.
Officials of DMRC evaded any direct response to questions pertaining to inviting the Delhi CM. The ambiguity hinted that likely Kejriwal would not be present at the inauguration ceremony. >
