Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the first coach for Mumbai Metro built under the 'Make in India' programme. Flanked by Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Mumbai Metro officials, PM Modi took a tour of the new coach and the train. The coach was built by state-run engineering firm BEML.
“The Mumbai metro project will not only help to easing out commute for passengers but will also be a source of employment for a number of people as coaches of the new metro train will be made in India,” the Prime Minster said.
PM Modi came to Mumbai after meeting with scientists of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) in Bengaluru. The Prime Minister had gone there to see live the landing of the Chandrayaan 2 mission on the moon, which did not go as planned.
"I have been inspired by ISRO scientists, the kind of dedication they showed, their hard work and how they worked day and night. We can learn from them," PM Modi said.
"There are three kinds of people - people who never start even to try in the fear of failure, people who run away from a problem at the sight of first hurdle and people who start then keep at it until they achieve it. The people at ISRO are the kinds who never stop trying," PM Modi said.
"I have heard of Mumbai spirit. I saw the spirit of ISRO scientists today," he added.
