Metro Man Sreedharan Won’t be BJP’s CM Candidate in Kerala? Union Minister’s Remark Stokes Confusion



Hours after BJP projected ‘metro man’ Elattuvalapil Sreedharan as its CM candidate for Kerala elections, Union minister V Muraleedharan’s statement has stoked confusion. He claimed to have “cross-checked” with party’s state chief K Surendran on the announcement, who said that “he has not made any such announcement”.

“What I wanted to tell was that through media reports I learnt that the party has made this announcement. Later, I cross-checked with the party chief who said that he has not made any such announcement,” V Muraleedharan was quoted as saying by ANI. His clarification came in response to his earlier statement.

Sreedharan, the architect of the Delhi Metro, had formally joined the BJP on February 25 in the presence of Union Minister R K Singh at a function at Changaramkulam in Malappuram district. He had earlier said that he will work as a technocrat rather than as a politician.
