Till Saturday, a total of seven people were scheduled to occupy chairs on the stage.
Faced with widespread criticism about E. Sreedharan not being accommodated on the stage at Kochi Metro's inaugural function, the PMO has finally decided to provide seating to him, KMRL's MD Elias George and Opposition Leader Ramesh Chennithala on stage.
Confirming this, Mr. George said that he is pleased at the inclusion of Mr. Sreedharan. With this, the number of dignitaries who will be on stage has gone up to 10. Still, MLA P T. Thomas remains with no
place on the stage.
Till Saturday, a total of seven people were scheduled to occupy chairs on the stage. Apart from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, they included Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, Governor P. Sathasivam, K V Thomas, MP, Minister for Transport Thomas Chandy and Mayor Soumini Jain.
While Mr. George would give the welcome speech, Mr. Modi, Mr. Vijayan and Mr. Naidu would address the gathering.
As per the list prepared by Kochi Metro Rail Ltd (KMRL) and forwarded by the State to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), 13 people were to share the dais with the Prime Minister, of which 10 were to address the gathering. After curtailment of the list to seven triggered a political storm and public outroar, the Chief Minister had on Wednesday asked Chief Secretary Nalini Netto to write to the PMO requesting to include Mr Sreedharan, Mr. Chennithala and Mr. Thomas on the stage.
