KOCHI: DMRC chief advisor E Sreedharan has come out the State government over the stalling of Light Metro project. “Earlier, I had met the chief minister several times, but in vain. Though I had asked time for a last meeting with him before withdrawing from the project, he didn’t give me the appointment. We had opened two offices for the Light Metro. For the last four months we had been spending Rs 16 lakh per month to run the Light Metro offices. This can’t continue as the DMRC doesn’t have the financial capacity for that,” he said at a press conference held on Thursday. 
Sreedharan said that he was withdrawing from the project with a heavy heart and the two offices would be closed down on the 15th of this month.
“We have no complaints against the government. I had asked for time to meet the chief minister, regarding the project later but it didn’t happen. The government is of the opinion that there is no need for the light metro. If they had wanted it, they would have signed the contract by now as 15 months have passed after the issue of the order. We had also met the Public Works minister, besides the chief minister. Both said that they will set it right but nothing positive happened. The government is only responsible for the withdrawal of the project,” he added.
