BJP not communal, party of nation-lovers, says ‘Metro Man’ E Sreedharan
At 88 years old, India’s metro man, Dr E Sreedharan sprung a political surprise when he announced his decision to join the BJP just before the Kerala elections. Dr Sreedharan said that it wasn’t just his admiration for Prime Minister Narendra Modi but the values of the BJP that prompted him to join the party. He also says he was impressed by former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who had insisted on buying his own metro ticket during one of its launches. To a question, Sreedharan stated that the BJP is not communal party but party of nation-lovers.
