What is the truth?

A part of the first phase of the metro rail project in Ahmedabad, Gujarat was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in March 2019. The total distance of this metro project is 27.5 km, out of which only a 6.5 km stretch of the first phase connecting Vastral and Apparel Park was opened in 2019. This project was approved in 2014.

Gujarat Metro Rail has announced this on its official website.

On 30 September 2022, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the metro project connecting Thaltej and Vastral at a distance of remaining 21 km for public use. The complete first phase of Ahmedabad Metro Rail project is now open.

From this, it is revealed that the Ahmedabad first phase metro rail project has been divided into two parts and inaugurated by Prime Minister Modi in 2019 and 2022.

Misinformation is being spread on social media that Prime Minister Modi keeps inaugurating the metro rail project, but in reality, it was opened in two stretches.

Conclusion

In our search, the rumour that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is re-opening the first phase of the Gujarat Ahmedabad metro project inaugurated in 2019 is false.

The inauguration of the remaining part of the first phase of the metro rail project is misunderstood and shared with a claim that he keeps on inaugurating the same project.
