Dhaka: Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday flagged off the first metro passenger train at Dhaka's Diabari area, marking a new beginning in the public transportation paradigm of the country.

The prime minister inaugurated the Uttara-Agargaon section of the metro rail line on Wednesday. The service will open to the public on Thursday, reports bdnews24.

Hasina urged passengers to maintain cleanliness at the stations.

"A lot of modern technology and digital devices have been used [as part of this project] and we must make sure that they do not break. Everyone using them should make sure that no one litters in our stations or dirties them. Everyone should be aware of this. I am sincerely asking those who make use of this service to do so in a clean, proper, and orderly way and to follow the rules," Hasina was quoted as saying by bdnews24.
