SP supremo Mulayam said he was glad the project was
completed in a timely fashion.
“When I was asked to lay foundation for the project, I wanted to know how much time it will take and refused when I was told it will take four years. Them they said it will be completed in three years, but I again declined. When I was told it will be completed in 2 years, I agreed,” he said.
Terming it as “historic day”, Mulayam said he would be happy if metro will also be started in Varanasi and appealed to people to vote for SP so that it could form government again to resume developmental work.
“The work done in UP during present SP regime are historic and have set an example before the country. UP’s work is being appreciated everywhere,” he said.
“We have done good work but we don’t discuss it,” Mulayam said, asking party workers to propagate it.
The entire 23-km long North-South corridor will have 21 stations including eight elevated ones, and the estimated cost of the project will be around Rs 6,800 crore.
The primary section (between Transport Nagar to Charbagh) would be open for public on March 26 next year after three months of rigorous trial.
At the function, SP state president Shivpal Yadav was also present.
LMRC, a special purpose vehicle, was registered under the Companies Act by the state government in 2013 to execute metro-rail project in city.
Padma Vibhushan E Sreedharan, who has successfully handled many mega projects in country, like Konkan railway and Delhi metro, is principal advisor of LMRC. PTI ABN SMI BSA
