Airport Metro Line in Delhi-an example of dangerous PPP commitment of Govt. of Delhi, DMRC involving reliance industries corruption – FIR to be registered against the culprits involved
BJP Delhi Pradesh President Sh. Vijender Gupta on the news of closer of Airport Metro from tomorrow (Sunday) onwards has expressed his deep anguish on behalf of BJP that Govt. of Delhi is playing havoc with the lives and properties of the people who travelled on the route during last 2 years. We are fortunate that never it is too late that DMRC could understand the risk they have taken with the passengers so far has travelled with great fanfare and trust. But that has been belied now with the disclosure of technical shortcomings that has forced DMRC to discontinue this service otherwise the lives and properties could be put in danger in any movement. The real disclosure is yet to come as to how much Govt. exchequer has been looted by Reliance Group out of this project in which they have compromise the safety and security by applying materials that is not up to mark from the point of construction and safety.
Sh. Gupta has demanded that a technical committee should be immediately formed to enquire in to the happenings and those responsible contractors, DMRC officials or the company involved in the work should be brought to book for such kind of criminal offence while they have committed with the people of India and abroad who already travelled by this train.
Sh. Gupta has explained as to how the Ministers of Delhi Govt. applauded them which constructing and inaugurating the Metro line when they declared that this Metro line is a world class and could go for a century without any maintenance and hindrance in service. The target of speed thus envisaged for 130 km per hour could not take of even up to 50 km per hour at any point of time.
Now it has transpired that out of total pillars of 122 numbers the wirings are bad and it could lead to any mishaps at any point of time. This was very much in the knowledge of Indian Urban Development Ministry yet they kept mum for the reasons best known to them. For the last two years the Metro pulled on how only god known. Needless to mention here that in another PPP project of electricity supply in Delhi the BRPL has shown a loss of Rs. 560 crores during the financial year 2007-08 and 2008-09 along with another company BYPL which has shown Rs. 55 crores loss but NDPL did all the years. It is open secret now that in the name of these companies whether MNC or Indian the people of Delhi are being looted in the name of development, as our honourable Chief Minister Mrs. Sheila Dikshit.
