Fact Check: PM Modi Never Said Vajpayee Started India's First Metro
Many people on social media are sharing news reports saying Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the first Metro train in India was started by the efforts of former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee. The posts are being shared in the backdrop of the inauguration of the first driver-less metro train.
