PM Narendra Modi, will inaugurate the Magenta Line of the Delhi Metro on December 25. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will also attend the inauguration of the Botanical Garden-Kalkaji Mandir section of the 36.23 km-line that will eventually be extended till Janakpuri in West Delhi.
However, to the surprise of many, inauguration ceremony of the of 12.64 km-long section does not include the name of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on the list of VIP invitees.
Equipped with a variety of new facilities for the commuters, the line will directly connect Kalkaji in South Delhi to Noida. The line, which is the sixth one of the Delhi Metro, will not only reduce travel time but also cost of commuting apart from taking pressure of traffic on the national capitals busy roads. The rest of the line is scheduled to be functional by March 2018.>
