E. Sreedharan To Remain As DMRC Chief
Sheila Dixit, Delhi Cm, on Monday emphasized that the Delhi Metro chief E Sreedharan’s resignation will not be accepted in any case. E. Sreedharan had resigned from his post due to the Sunday morning bridge collapse, which caused the death of 6 people.
Speaking to reporters, Dixit said that the presence of Sreedharan was vital for the entire project. She also added that Delhi government Cabinet will meet for deciding on the DMRC chief’s resignation.
Sreedharan had been involved with the Delhi Metro right from the beginning and the organisation is currently faced with tight schedule to complete several lines ahead of the Commonwealth games 2010.
The DMRC chief earlier this morning once again inspected the site where an under-construction bridge collapsed yesterday, even as clearing operations in the area were going on.
DMRC set up a four-member committee to examine reasons for the accident and it would submit its report in 10 days. The Urban Development Ministry of the Central government is also setting up a committee to look into the lapses.
After the high-level meeting that happened on Sunday night for discussing the accident, the Delhi CM has decided not to accept the resignation.
