Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for breaking a superstition on Monday as he himself chose to come to Noida, once considered "inauspicious" for CMs.

In the city to inaugurate Delhi Metro's magenta line, Modi pointed to the saffron robed Adityanath and said that looking at his dress, the CM appeared to be superstitious, but had actually shown that he had the courage to break superstitions.

"Unfortunately there were superstitions associated with Noida and in his own style, Yogi Adityanath has risen above these superstitions and came to Noida. I was clear I would go to all those places in my first year itself", he said.

After visiting the megacity, Yogi Adityanath said that he had ended the "Noida jinx" once and for all and assured people that henceforth, he is visiting the city on a frequent basis.

Adityanath's visit to Noida was significant, as it was the first visit by the UP CM after a long gap of eight years.

On both these occasions, Modi took the Metro rides with the chief ministers of the respective states where the BJP is not in power-Pinarayi Vijayan in Kochi, Kerala and K Chandrasekhar Rao in Hyderabad, Telangana. "I am very happy".

Those who entertain such superstitions have no right to be the chief minister, Modi said in Noida. At the time, he promised that his government will focus on development and work to create more employment opportunities. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, leader of the Aam Aadmi Party was not invited to the inauguration.

A day before the Magenta Line's inauguration, the Prime Minister tweeted, "Great news for friends in the NCR!"

The Areas will remain under severe traffic restrictions from 7 am till evening, through which the Prime Minister Narendra Modi's motorcade will pass.
