Lucknow Metro construction kick off threatens to turn political

By , TNN

NEW DELHI: Uttar Pradesh chief minister’s decision to kick off construction of the Lucknow Metro on Saturday even as it awaits Centre’s go ahead may become a political issue. But it won’t impact the future of the project including the Union government’s contribution to equity.

It’s learnt that UP government has not even invited Lucknow MP and Union home minister Rajnath Singh to attend the event.

Sources said there have been cases when state governments such as Rajasthan have gone ahead with similar projects and have got in-principle approval later. They added that the Centre is also likely to have its share of equity in this project. More info
