Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the 12.64 kilometre-long Magenta Line of the Delhi Metro at Noida on Monday. "This metro, whose line was just inaugurated, is not only for the present but also for future generations", he said.

"The only reason of not sending invitation to Kejriwal was to stop him of making demand from PM to reduce recently hiked Delhi Metro fare", Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia tweeted.

He said that the Japanese expertise and technology is also being made available to the Delhi Metro, in areas such as civil works, propulsion systems, signalling and telecom, track and project management.

Plan to run Metro trains in Agra and Kanpur was in pipeline, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday said.

Once fully operational by March next, the Magenta Line (Botanical Garden-Janakpuri West) will ferry approximately 3.60 lakh commuters every day, Delhi Metro estimates.

Speaking at the inaugural ceremony of the metro line in Noida, the chief minister said, "This step to inaugurate Metro's magenta line will prove to be a milestone towards realising the dreams of development for the Noida and the Greater Noida region". The Botanical Garden-Kalkaji section has nine stations.
