With just days to go before one of the most awaited infrastructure projects in Kerala to be officially rolled out, authorities decided to thank those worked day and night to make the dream a reality with a moving gesture.
The Kochi Metro on Monday held a traditional banquet know as ‘sadhya’ for some 800 migrant workers from across the country who were part of the massive construction project.
Even top KMRL officials along with MD, Elias George IAS sat along with the construction workers for the banquet. Not just the sumptuous banquet, there were even some cultural events for the workers with some Bollywood songs and dance.
The migrant workers also wrote down their names on the message board.
Even before it started functioning, Kochi Metro has quite a few first to its credit like hiring transgenders as employees.
It will also have the largest contingent of women staff members, including women train drivers.
Kochi Metro which was built at a cost of Rs 5,181 crore is set to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday, who will also take the Metro train from Palarivattom and travel till Pathadipalam.
