‘It works like a govt office’: Twitter has hilarious responses to Lucknow Metro snag
More than 100 passengers of the Lucknow Metro had a harrowing first ride of the hyped project after being trapped inside the train for more than two hours.Updated: Sep 06, 2017 17:35 IST
About 100 passengers were trapped after the Lucknow Metro, launched by home minister Rajnath Singh and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath a day before, was halted for two hours after a technical snag on Wednesday.
Train services were suspended for about three hours and angry passengers complained that they couldn’t reach their destination on time.
Twitter users reacted with pungent humour, with some asking if chief minister Adityanath and former CM Akhilesh Yadav will still fight over taking credit for the Lucknow Metro.
