The Prime Minister also laid foundation stone of the Grand Memorial of Bharat Ratna Dr.Babasaheb Ambedkar
“I am very elated to lay the foundation stone for the two Metro corridors as it was Dr. Ambedkar who, while analysing Indian Railways, had observed that the rail based transport can bring about social integration. Metro network is necessary for growing urban areas. While many may look at urban growth as a problem, I look at it as an opportunity”, said Modi further.
