PM Modi Visit Pune | PM Modi’s fifth visit to Pune in nine years

Pune: Pune’s eagerly anticipated Metro line, spanning 6 kilometres from Rubi Hall Clinic to Ramwadi, is poised for inauguration on Wednesday, March 6. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is slated to inaugurate the line remotely, marking a significant milestone in the city’s transportation infrastructure. Concurrently, the foundation stone for a 4.4-kilometer-long Metro line from Pimpri-Chinchwad to Nigdi will be laid, promising further expansion of the metro network.

The Prime Minister’s Office has communicated to Metro authorities that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, although scheduled to be in Kolkata for an event on Wednesday, will remotely inaugurate the Pune Metro line and lay the foundation stone for the Pimpri-Chinchwad metro extension. However, the PMO has cautioned that last-minute changes to the programs are possible.

Upon inauguration, the Bund Garden, Kalyaninagar, and Ramwadi stations along the Rubi Hall to Ramwadi Metro line will be opened to passengers, providing much-needed relief from traffic congestion. While the Yerawada station’s completion is still underway, it is expected to commence operations shortly.

Former MLA and Vice President of the Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee, Mohan Joshi, underscored the significance of opening the Rubi Hall to Ramwadi Metro line, citing the pressing need to alleviate traffic woes for Pune residents. Joshi credited the concerted efforts of the Congress Party and platforms like ‘Wakeup Punekar’ for rallying public opinion and ensuring the realisation of this vital infrastructure project.
