Kochi: DMRC Chief Advisor E Sreedharan received huge applause from the audience at the Kochi Metro Rail inaugural ceremony here on Saturday.
This unexpected laurel came while KMRL Managing Director Elias George was delivering the welcome address at the function.
Just as he uttered the name of E Sreedharan, a loud applause came from the sea of audience that he even had to pause his speech briefly.
Sreedharan, who helmed many important projects in the country and is now working with the Kochi Metro project, is fondly called the ‘Metro Man’.
He was included in the list of dignitaries on dais by the PMO after Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan wrote to the PM in the wake of popular demand.
