India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Sa­ma­jwadi Party Chief Mu­layam Singh Ya­dav and his son, Ut­tar Pradesh Chief Min­is­ter Akhilesh Ya­dav, have been pur­su­ing for­mer Delhi Metro man­ag­ing di­rec­tor E. Sreed­ha­ran to play a more ac­tive role in the 38-km Luc­know Metro project. The Metro Man is a con­sul­tant in the Luc­know project, but now lives a semi-re­tired life in Ker­ala. He re­cently ex­pressed his in­abil­ity to travel to the state cap­i­tal. On March 3, Mu­layam said he had writ­ten to the Cen­tre rec­om­mend­ing a Bharat Ratna for Sreed­ha­ran. Akhilesh, mean­while, got his staff to patch Sreed­ha­ran through on a video con­fer­ence with his top babus in Luc­know’s state sec­re­tariat. The Ya­dav charm of­fen­sive is un­der­way.
