“Our government brought out a policy relating to metros. This is because we felt aspects relating to metro systems need greater coherence and work as per a basic set of standards,” PM Modi added.

“Several nations helped us in the making of the Delhi Metro and other Metros, and now, we are helping other nations by designing coaches for their Metro systems,” Modi tweeted.

“New India requires new and smart infrastructure. We have worked on roads, railways, highways, airways, waterways, and i-ways. There is unparalleled focus on connectivity and ensuring development projects are completed on time,” the PM tweeted.

“The Metro will bring convenience to this part, which is considered the gateway to Haryana … We have seen how the Metro in Delhi has positively impacted the lives of citizens,” Modi said.
