Uttar Pradesh capital Lucknow today joined the list of cities having Metro train services. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath flagged off the maiden run of the Lucknow Metro.
The first train was flagged off by the home minister, who represents the Lucknow Lok Sabha seat, and the chief minister from the Transport Nagar metro station.
As Metro Rolls Out, Yogi Adityanath Says Lucknow Now ‘Smart City’.
Former CM Akhilesh Yadav and his father Mulayam Singh Yadav had flagged off the trial run on the same stretch in December last year, just ahead of the Assembly elections, to showcase it as a signature project of the then Samajwadi Party government.
