E Sreedharan, known as Metro Man, will join BJP this month. This information was given by Kerala BJP chief K Surendran on Thursday. Assembly elections are due in the state this year. In this sense, BJP can benefit from joining with Sreedharan. Sreedharan will officially join the party during the Vijay Yatra being taken out on 21 February under the leadership of Surendran.
Meanwhile, Surendran said that Sreedharan has expressed a desire to work with the BJP. However, there has not been much response from Sreedharan yet.
Sreedharan was the director of Delhi Metro for 7 years
E Sreedharan, born on 12 June 1932, is a famous civil engineer of India. He was the director of Delhi Metro from 1995 to 2012. The Government of India honored him with the Padma Shri in 2001 and the Padma Vibhushan in 2008.
Political manipulations are going on in the state before the elections. Recently Bharatiya Dharma Jana Sena (BDJS), an ally of BJP and a part of NDA, broke away from the alliance. Some leaders of BDJS have left the party and formed a new party. It is named Bharti Jana Sena (BJS). A few days ago, BJP President JP Nadda visited Kerala on a two-day tour.
