Dharam from his ivory tower: "No problems in Bangalore"

Metro Rail on track, says Azad
Deccan Herald

Bangalore Metro Rail is on track and the crucial Public Investment Board meeting will be held on August 5, where the project is expected to get the green signal, Union Minister for Urban Development and Parliamentary Affairs Ghulam Nabi Azad said on Saturday.

Speaking at the inauguration of Cauvery IV Stage, II phase project in Bangalore, Mr Azad said: “Bangalore Metro Rail is in its advanced stage. PIB will examine all details and clarifications given by the State Government on the project before taking the decision.”

But he did not reveal whether the project will be cleared in the meeting or not.

IT happy

IT companies’ protest against crumbling infrastructure and their decision to keep out of the forthcoming IT.In, doesn’t seem to have had any effect, at least on the Chief Minister N Dharam Singh.

Interestingly, Mr Singh thinks that IT companies are “happy” with what the Government has been doing pertaining to infrastructure. “IT companies are now happy about initiatives taken by the Government. Words of appreciation came from IT czars when international airport work at Devanahalli began,” he added.
