New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is going to give a gift to the Delhi-NCR people on the occasion of Christmas and the birthday of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. PM Modi will flag off the Magenta Line Metro that runs between Noida and Delhi.
From Botanical Garden to Okhla Bird Century, this metro will also be traveling and in the evening this metro will be opened for people traveling from Noida to South Delhi. On this special occasion, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will also be present with PM Modi. After showing the green flag to the Magenta Line, PM Modi will sit in the Metro and reach Okhla Bird Century Metro station and address the people there. This metro line is also important because those who wanted to come to Noida from Faridabad had to be stuck in the jam but now they are getting relief from it.
PM Modi’s program
To inaugurate the metro line, Prime Minister Modi will reach the Botanical Garden at 11:30 in the morning. After inaugurating the new route, PM Modi will go to the Okhla Barrage Metro station in a metro train. Prime Minister will also make a road show from Okhla Barrage Metro Station.
This roadshow will be flying over Mahamaya from Okhla Barrage to Noida Sector -94. After this, the Prime Minister’s convoy will reach Noida Sector-126. The Prime Minister will also address a gathering at Amity University, Sector 126. All preparations have been completed in the university for this. The Prime Minister will return at 2 o’clock.
Magenta Line will go from Metro Botanical Garden Metro Station to Kalkaji Metro Station. In the meantime, there will be nine Metro stations in the middle. First will be the Botanical Garden metro station, then the Okhla Bird Century metro station will come. After this, the Kalindi Kunj Metro station will reach, then Jasola Vihar, Okhla Vihar, Jamia Millia Islamia, Sukhdev Vihar, Okhla NSIC and the Kalakaji Temple Metro Station will finally come. This distance will be fixed in just 12 km instead of 28 km and the savings will also be 20 rupees per passenger.
How Magenta line is beneficial?
The distance from Botanical Gardens to Kalkaji was 28 kilometers. To visit the Botanical Garden from Kalkaji, the Mandi used to go to the house and interact with Mandi House and take the Blue Line’s metro.
On reaching Botanical crossing 10 lines of Blue Line, Kalkaji reached the Botanical Garden crossing 20 stations and now can now be reached directly from Botanical Garden from Magenta Line. That is, the advantage of starting the magenta line now is that you will reach Botanical Garden kalkaji directly and there are only seven stations in the middle. There are nine stations that you will reach Botanical Garden.
The magenta line is a part of the Delhi Metro Phase III, which is 35 kilometers long. At the moment, the first phase will be 12 km, with the last station being Kalkaji Metro station, from which people will not be able to come to the Botanical Garden and now save their time along with money. Without Magenta Metro running from Botanical Garden to Kalkaji, the driver will run, though DMRC has decided that it will be run with the driver right now and it will be made driver only after taking the public into confidence.
