Prime Minister Narendra Modi today got the first hand experience of travelling in a Delhi metro.

The prime minister along with the Security Advisor Ajit Doval travelled from Dhaula Kuan in south west Delhi to Dwarka in west Delhi.

According to the sources, the Prime Minister used the Metro service to avoid inconvenience to the public on the route because of security arrangements.

After the journey, Modi tweeted, ” Sreedharan ji would always tell me to experience the Delhi Metro. Today I had the opportunity to do so on the way to Dwarka.”

Talking about the Prime Minister’s metro ride, environment minister Prakash Javadekar said, “PM set an example today, used the metro just like all of us in public use daily. He is thus sending a message that all of us should use the metro regularly. He also advised his ministers that they should use a bicycle more often.”
