An old photo, which has done rounds even during the inauguration of Delhi and Bangalore metro rail network, surfaced now in Hyderabad. Many people started sharing a photograph that shows a metro pillar broken. It’s so scary that one will surely think twice to get on a Metro by seeing that picture.

Metro MD NVS Reddy today clarified that the picture was actually of a pillar in Peshawar, Pakistan. “Metro pillars are built so stronger that they will stand against earthquakes too. They could easily carry tonnes of weights over them. This is a rumour being spread by some people unhappy with the inaugural of such world-class system” he said.

On October 29th, Metro was inaugurated by PM Narendra Modi with 30 km Miyapur-Nagole stretch being operated in the first phase.
