During his address in the foundation stone laying ceremony of Ahmedabad and Surat metro rail projects, PM Modi said that the best example to see the work difference between previous governments and current government is the expansion of metro rail network across country.

He further said that there was a time when there was no modern thinking regarding metro network and no metro policy.
