BJP MP Tejasvi Surya has called for the immediate intervention of Union Housing and Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Singh Puri to secure a dedicated Managing Director (MD) for the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRCL).

During a meeting in Delhi, Surya urged Minister Puri to promptly engage with the State Government to appoint a full-time MD for the effective leadership of the Bangalore Metro operations. He also requested the Minister to personally inspect the ongoing Namma Metro projects in the city.

Taking to the social media platform X to share details of his meeting with Minister Puri, Surya emphasized the crucial need for a full-time MD to oversee operations, citing significant delays in critical projects such as the Yellow Line.

Accusing Chief Minister Siddaramaiah of neglecting the appointment of a full-time MD, Surya expressed dissatisfaction with the state government’s apparent indifference to the delays and cost overruns in the Namma Metro projects, despite repeated reminders.

Puri assured Surya of a forthcoming visit to Bengaluru, during which he plans to assess the progress of all Metro projects, including the vital airport line.

The Yellow Line, spanning 18.8 km and connecting RV Road with Bommasandra through 16 stations, holds strategic significance for Bengaluru South, linking crucial IT/BT and industrial corridors.

While the BMRCL had initially projected the line’s completion by February 2024, Surya identified potential obstacles, including the delayed delivery of the Train Control Management System (TCMS) software, expected only by June 2024. Expressing skepticism about meeting the February 2024 deadline, Surya highlighted the urgency of addressing these issues for the timely inauguration of services.
