Bid to derail Sreedharan, DMRC from Kochi Metro

An orchestrated effort appears to be afoot to throw out ‘Metroman’ E Sreedharan and Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) from Kochi metro project and offer this Rs 6000-crore work to private investors on a platter.  

The “high-level conspiracy” has been exposed with the leaking of a letter written by Tom Jose, a senior IAS officer and former managing director of KMRC (Kochi Metro Rail Corporation), created to implement the project, to DMRC chairman Sudheer Krishna, seeking clarification on the mandate given by DMRC to Sreedharan in the Kochi project.

DMRC, which opened an office in Kochi for the project, took a U-turn recently and said that it has no interest at present to take over works outside Delhi. Therefore, DMRC is not likely to back Sreedharan, because of whom the State favours DMRC for the implementation of the project.
