The Botanical Garden (Noida) to Kalkaji (Delhi) metro line is all set to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on December 25.
Accompanying the Prime Minister will be Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath.
According to an India Today report by Pooja Shali, inauguration ceremony does not include the name of Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal on the list of VIP invitees.
The Delhi government is not required to directly send funds for an extended line, but there is an equal partnership with center in DMRC for human resources, technical equipments and other logistics.
Officials of DMRC evaded any direct response to questions pertaining to inviting the Delhi CM. The ambiguity hinted that likely Kejriwal would not be present at the inauguration ceremony.
Delhi government sources, meanwhile, confirmed that CM has no intimation of the upcoming event.
In fact, Yogi Adityanath arrives in Noida on Saturday afternoon, two days before the flag-off ceremony. A review meeting is scheduled with officials of the DMRC and the government ahead of December 25 event.
