Lucknow Metro to convene urgent Board of Directors’ meeting today

लखनऊ Lucknow (LKO): Following chief minister Akhilesh Yadav’s clear instructions to complete the first phase of the project before December 2016, Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) is left with no option but to speed up decision making and execution of the project on a priority basis.

The corporation has put its foot down on the matter by calling an urgent meeting of its board on Monday under the chairmanship of chief secretary Jawed Usmani .

Responding to the delay, a senior official in the housing and urban planning department said “after Sreedharan suggested hiring technical hands as MD and directors of LMRC, we worked on criteria of qualifications, seniority , past track record and expertise .”
