Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Aditya Nath are scheduled to inaugurate the latest addition to the metro railway network of Delhi and Uttar Pradesh on 25th December in Noida.
Yogi Aditya Nath becomes a trend breaker by planning to visit Noida as his predecessor always avoided visiting Noida in the fear of losing their next election. Whereas news reports from media claim that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is not invited to the function. This is bound to make people think about the precedents that the central Government is taking.
The equation between Arvind Kejriwal and Narendra Modi is known all over where Arvind Kejriwal has been found to claim that Narendra Modi is not allowing him to perform well in Delhi. Whereas if you look the invitation of Mr. Arvind Kejriwal is a reflection of the current political trends where the animosity between political figures is taken to a personal level.
In another case, the current finance minister filed a case against Delhi chief minister when he claimed that Mr. Arun Jaitley made personal gains when he was chairman of the Delhi cricket Board.The metro rail which is a key project of the central government as well state government because it is jointly operated by them. Noida metro rail corporation exists for the purpose of expansion of metro in the city of Noida.
The Myth Of Noida
Noida was considered to be placed to be avoided during chief ministership. The antecedent set up by the previous Uttar Pradesh chief ministers was based on their mythical tale of losing their power once they visit Noida. Mayawati did the same thing when she was the chief minister of the Uttar Pradesh.
She never visited Noida although all party activities and the meeting went normal but physical visit to the place was avoided till they remained in power. Akhilesh Yadav managed to follow this myth religiously, inaugurating multiple projects of Noida through video conferencing at state capital Lucknow. He also somehow believed in this myth of losing power if they visited Noida any time in their stint as ruling party in the state.
Metro line has been extended from Kalka Ji Mandir to Botanical garden, a 12.64 Kilometre distance named as a magenta line. The first ever interchange metro station outside Delhi has been constructed at Botanical garden. This development of Delhi Metro will considerably reduce traffic and help people of Delhi and Noida. Yogi Aditya Nath went into the inauguration place a day before for the inspection of the preparation of the event.
This looks like an event which has been totally hijacked by the Uttar Pradesh government since it involves their city. We are yet to see the fate of the next election to see if the myth created by Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav holds true for the Yogi Aditya Nath too. He has, of course, has not believed in any such myth. Newspapers and political commentators have been claiming that the myth around Noida will not hold true but it will be clear in the next election.
