Kolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday expressed her unhappiness after the Metro railways chose not to invite her for the inauguration of the first phase of the East-West Metro project.
While addressing the Assembly, Banerjee said: "I had announced the East-West Metro Railway project despite various difficulties and put much effort for the project to happen.
Union Railway minister Piyush Goyal on Thursday inaugurated the first phase of the East-West Metro corridor, connecting sector V with Salt Lake Stadium.
It may be mentioned here that the Chief Minister, during her tenure as the Railway minister from 2009-2011, had sanctioned funds for the project in the Railway budget.
Babul Supriyo, during a television interview, however, claimed that the railways had invited the Chief Minister.
