Highlighting the Agra Metro project, the chief minister said the work was being carried out at a quick pace and the facility will be open to public next year.
He credited the BJP’s “double engine government”, for the tranformation of Agra, which he said was “one of the dirtiest cities in the country until 2017″ into a “cleaner, safer and smarter” city.
Prior to this, he campaigned in Mainpuri for BJP candidate Raghuraj Singh Shakya for the upcoming parliamentary bypoll.
