CHENNAI (Metro Rail News): Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Shri M.K. Stalin informed the state assembly that the central government had given its approval for the phase II project of the Metro Rail.

“We received information yesterday that the Union government had given its permission for the phase II project,” Stalin said.

The Union government approval came after he insisted on meeting Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi in New Delhi. “I had spoken about the metro project to him in detail. So, it was the pressure that made us get permission from the union government yesterday,” said CM, Tamil Nadu.

During his speech at the state assembly, CM said that the government was getting the nod for the metro project in Coimbatore. Stalin’s remarks came after Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Smt. Vanathi Srinivasan asked why the state government would implement the Coimbatore metro rail project only after consulting with the Centre.

In that question, Stalin answered, “Apart from Coimbatore, a project has been announced in Madurai. These projects can be implemented only after getting approval from the Union government. Wherever the projects are announced, they will be implemented definitely.”

Stalin said the government has also announced metro rail for Madurai and will urge the centre for the project in Coimbatore as well
