PM Modi inaugurates much-awaited Whitefield metro line in Bengaluru
PM Modi inaugurates much-awaited Whitefield metro line in Bengaluru

Bengaluru, March 25 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday inaugurated the much-awaited Whitefield (Kadugodi) to Krishnarajapuram (KR Puram) metro line in Bengaluru, built at a cost of Rs 4,249 crore.

PM Modi is visiting the state on March 25 and Shah is taking up the state tour on March 24 and 26. With back to back visits and high-voltage campaigning in mega events across the state, the ruling BJP is hoping to create maximum impact on voters. Amit Shah is unveiling statues of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and Nadaprabhu Kempe Gowda and Basaveshwar. Sardar Patel statue is built at Gorta village in Bidar district in north Karnataka. Bengaluru architect Kempe Gowda and social reformer Basaveshwara statues have been built in the premises of the Vidhana Soudha in Bengaluru. Amit Shah will unveil them on March 26.  The opposition parties are fuming over the BJP's campaigning blitzkrieg. Opposition leader Siddaramaiah had said that "the people who are opposed to the principles of Basaveshwar are unveiling the statue, what is the message they are giving? "Shah is visiting Karnataka during elections only with a political motive. He is doing it only for votes and power," he said. On March 25, PM Modi will inaugurate the much awaited Metro-line from K.R. Puram to Whitefield. The stretch is known as the tech corridor and a large number of IT professionals travel to Whitefield. The Karnataka Congress unit has raised objections to the repeated visits of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and slammed him by saying that "he has become a quack doctor of inaugurating half-baked projects in the state for gaining mileage in elections."
