Former Kerala CM Oommen Chandy Narrates How Sheila Dikshit Helped in Making Kochi Metro a Reality | Former Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Saturday said that had it not been for Sheila Dikshit, Kerala's landmark Kochi Metro would not have become a reality. 'Metro Man' E. Sreedharan, who was heading the Delhi Metro, was flooded with requests from various states that he should take the lead to construct similar metros, but the Delhi government came out with an order that it would not be possible to dispense with his services.
"I, as the Chief Minister (2011-16), took up the case with Dikshit and after realizing that without Sreedharan, Kochi Metro would not become a reality, she readily agreed. Sreedharan's services were obtained for the Kochi Metro and it became a reality in 2017. Kerala owes a great deal to her for this," he said.
