When the Prime Minister travels, the road is closed for sometime for his movement.

“Sreedharan ji would always tell me to experience the Delhi Metro. Today I had the opportunity to do so on the way to Dwarka,” he tweeted.

“Really enjoyed the ride. Thanks Delhi Metro. Thanks Sreedharan ji!,” he said.
