It began when television aired a commercial showcasing the Lucknow Metro with a video message from Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath. "People are the main inspiration behind the fast pace of metro project", the CM said after flagging off metro train decked up with flowers.

This was not the first time that the Lucknow Metro was piloted by women, a similar thing was seen in December previous year during the initial trial run of the metro. "Thank you E Sreedharan ji & Team LMRC".

It is for the first time that the metro will run in Lucknow.

Rajnath Singh also said the work has also started for construction of 104 km ring road around Lucknow.

The BJP had attacked the Akhilesh government during the assembly election campaign, asking why metro trains were not running in Lucknow.

Addressing the gathering at the inaugural ceremony of the Lucknow Metro, Adityanath said, "The wait for travelling in the Lucknow Metro is over".

The newly inaugurated 8.5 km route will be opened to the public from Wednesday onwards. Meanwhile Alstom, the manufacturer of the "Make in India" Lucknow Metro sets, is already in the process of making more trains for the network.

Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, however, attacked the current government over the Lucknow Metro inauguration as he posted several images to convey that the major part of the project had been completed during his tenure.

Lucknow Metro is ready to start services from September 6, 2017!

The response of the people to Lucknow Metro has been enthusiastic and about 4,000 metro smart cards have been sold till now.

The two pilots are among 19 other women loco pilots who have been recruited by Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) to pilot the metro trains.
