Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday flagged off Kerala’s first Metro. The PM arrived at Palarivattom station, from where he inaugrated the Metro line. PM Modi took a ride on the metro along with Kerala Governor Palanisamy Sathasivam, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu.
