News Claim: Fake news viral on social media claims that Mumbai Bandra Worli sea link was Inaugurated during PM Narendra Modi regime

Viral News Today: यह कोई अमेरीका फ़्रांस लन्दन का ब्रीज नही है यह बांद्रा के मुंबई का ब्रीज है, वाह मोदी जी वाह ,नमो नमो

This is not America, France is the bridge of London, it is the bridge of Mumbai in Bandra, Wah Modi ji, Namo Namo



News Verification: The above message that was recently viral on social media is not true. This bridge was not inaugurated during Prime Minister Modi regime.

This bridge was inaugurated during the time when the Congress was in power at the centre and in the Maharashtra state. The bridge was inaugurated by Congress president Sonia Gandhi in 2009.

The bridge was commissioned by the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC), and built by the Hindustan Construction Company. The first four of the eight lanes of the bridge were opened to the public on 30 June 2009. All eight lanes were opened on 24 March 2010.
