Metro work done in haste, says BJP

Delhi Chief Minister Shiela Dikshit, however, denied the allegation. “It is the second (such) incident in the past 10 months, and we have to find out who is responsible for it. The Metro construction is being done in a hurry to meet the deadline of the Games as the Delhi government is lagging behind. We shouldn’t work in haste just because the Commonwealth games are coming up,” Vijay Kumar Malhotra, Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Assembly, told reporters.

Quality ‘compromised’

Delhi Mayor Kanwar Sain, who visited the accident site, said: “The Delhi Metro projects are going at a fast pace, and the quality of work is being compromised. An inquiry is necessary.”

Denying the allegations, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said: “It is worrying that this is the second incident in the past few months. It is a lesson for everyone. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation carries out its work independently and has a good past record. I don’t think it was due to the pressure of Commonwealth Games that the incident happened. There is no pressure that could lead to the collapse.”
