On Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated two new Mumbai Metro lines, line 2A (Dahisar to Andheri West D.N. Nagar) and line 7 (Dahisar East to Andheri East). PM Modi was accompanied by Maharashtra chief minister Eknath Shinde and deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis in a ride from Gundavali to Mogra station.
On Sunday, Deputy CM Devendra Fadnvis issued a statement to MMRDA to mandatorily play ‘Mood Banayela’ song in metro every hour to give the commuter a better experience of traveling. The ‘Mood Banaleya’ song is sung by Amruta Fadnavis.
Opposition accused Devendra Fadnavis of nepotism by promoting his wife’s song, however, Devendra Fadnavis denied these allegations and said that the song is being played to avoid congestion in Mumbai Metro during its initial runs.
Reportedly, the metro witnessed drastic reduce in number of commuters after ‘Mood Banaleya’ song being played but reduction in number of commuters can’t be directly correlated to the song, since it’s Sunday and real impact will be seen on Monday. Details awaited
