Letters to the Editor
The collapse of the under-construction metro rail bridge in Delhi (July 13) is a wake-up call for the administration. This is a glaring example of how corruption can kill innocent people. There is no doubt that compromise on quality has led to the incident. Metro, a symbol of Delhi’s cosmopolitanism, is now losing its sheen. E. Sreedharan set high standards by his resignation — since withdrawn — but India needs the service of men like him.
Vaibhav C. Ghalme,
Will the resignation of Mr. Sreedharan provide a solution? Let there be an effective system to monitor and evaluate periodically the risk pertaining to human life, especially in the construction industry.
Mr. Sreedharan was the man who infused and induced an innovative, effective and highly productive work culture in Delhi Metro which revolutionised the urban rapid transit system foreign to our sluggish system. Though the incident is highly regrettable, human errors can at best be contained and never eliminated. That Delhi Metro has sustained very few accidents is enough proof to the calibre and capability of the highly motivated work force and management.
