LUCKNOW || Students at the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Lucknow on Saturday got to know of the works done by the Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) to make the facility a reality in record time for the commuters in the state capital of Uttar Pradesh. Managing Director of LMRC Kumar Keshav visited the IIM Lucknow and shared the “success mantras” of Metro Project execution and shared with them the milestones which Lucknow Metro recently achieved after the opening of its full stretch of 23 Km from CCS Airport to Munshipuliya on March 8, 2019.
He said “the success of any project lies in proper planning, time management, strict adherence to schedules and professional competence of the subject.” “Discipline, Punctuality, Ethics and Integrity are the building blocks for the success of any project. Adherence to these virtues laid the foundation stone for such a glorious achievement”, he added.
Keshav also shared his recent experience when Lucknow Metro was recently recognised and acknowledged at the National Day of Rail in Holland. He proudly told students that people out there don’t know much about the Lucknow City in India but only knows about the Lucknow Metro Project, as this is the fastest executed metro project of the world.
He added, “Working passionately with a sincere, dedicated and devoted approach can only yield such impossible results”. Executing a mammoth project like the Lucknow Metro Rail Project is, nevertheless, an easy task in an extremely compressed deadline, he elaborated.
It is only because of these virtues and sustained work round the clock that LMRC has been able to achieve this historical feat in less than three years. This has broken all the previous records of Metro Project execution, thereby, making the Lucknow Metro Rail Project the fastest ever Metro Project which has been made operational in just less than three years.
Sharing his recent experience was to commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, Lucknow Metro has conducted several activities at its premises. Where on one side, 24×7 water ATM machine was inaugurated at Lekhraj Metro Station and on other, we dedicated an entire wall of Sachiwalaya Metro Station to Bapu. The pictures over the wall, covering 19.7 meters x 2.7 meters, depict the journey of Gandhiji’s life.
Keshav said, ‘this is not just a collection of photographs, but a “Motto” that can inspire Lakhs of people to move forward in their lives. The life of Mahatma has been a journey of sacrifice which is an inspiration for people, by following his footprints people will be able to give a healthy and beautiful society to the coming generation.”
