Mumbai: E Sreedharan, former MD, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), met the Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis here today.
An official in the Chief Minister's office described the meeting as a courtesy call. "Fadnavis requested Sreedharan to extend his help for the Metro projects in Maharashtra," the official said. "Sreedharan's response was positive," he added.
In February this year, Sreedharan had expressed satisfaction over the progress of the Nagpur Metro project. Sreedharan recently said India should upgrade and improve the present railway infrastructure rather than investing in bullet trains at this juncture.
Sources from MMRDA on condition of anonymity said that Sreedharan will act as adviser and help in implementing metro projects around the Mumbai Metropolitan region.
