Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday inaugurated the Mundka-Bahadurgarh section under Delhi Metro’s Green Line and said his government’s priority is to build convenient, comfortable and affordable urban transport systems in cities.
Inaugurating the latest section via video conference, he said there was a direct link between connectivity and development.
“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,” he said in his address.
He also said that the government wants to boost make in India by making coaches of the Metro in India itself.
“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 said.
