The first phase of metro project will connect a 4.88-km stretch between Sector V of Salt Lake the IT hub of the city with Salt Lake Stadium.
Mamta Banerjee used slam words for the CPI(M) and Congress for politically surrendering before the BJP. She criticised the opposition parties in West Bengal for the political pollution.
