For the upcoming Independence Day celebrations, the Delhi Metro Railway Corporation(DMRC) has come up with a different and unique design for a train to spread the message of patriotism and Nationalism. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) today put into service a six-coach special train, fully wrapped with the photographs of freedom fighters and Indian icons to spread the message of patriotism and unity among commuters, an official said. The train will run between Samaypur Badli and HUDA City Center (Yellow Line) for the next two months carrying pictures of National Father Mahatma Gandhi, Bhagat Singh, BR Ambedkar, Lata Mangeshkar, Subhash Chandra Bose, former President APJ Abdul Kalam, Kapil Dev and Ustad Bismillah Khan.
Union Minister of State for External Affairs General VK Singh paid tributes to the freedom fighters and martyrs by writing a message on the decorated train. He wrote ‘Happy Independence Day‘ in Hindi on a panel on the train at the Lok Kalyan Marg Metro Station. “The train is carrying many inspiring and motivational messages to spread the idea of nationalism,” the DMRC official said.
