New Delhi: ‘Metroman’ E Sreedharan today vouched for integrity of Delhi Metro officials claiming that despite being awarded many high-value contracts, “not a single allegation of misuse of funds” has been levelled against them.
The former chief of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said its officials maintain “99.95 percent punctuality” and other businesses must take inspiration from the organisation.
Speaking at a day-long workshop titled ‘leading businesses with ethics and integrity’, Sreedharan highlighted four principles which fuel functioning of DMRC- “punctuality”, “integrity”, “professional competence” and “social responsibility”.
It has gained enough experience to systematically and efficiently run the sprawling system in the national capital and can also take up the role of advisers in upcoming Metro rail projects in tier-2 cities in India, he said.
Citing the falling standards in ethics and values in business sector, he suggested the next-gen leaders not to compromise on ethics at any cost and stick to high moral values.
The workshop was organised by a non-governmental think tank, Foundation for Restoration of National Values (FRNV), which Sreedharan heads.
