Principal Adviser to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, E Sreedharan, met Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Friday, to discuss a joint survey for the proposed Nilambur-Nanjangud railway line. The railway line, proposed nearly a decade ago, was in cold storage till the Kerala government asked Sreedharan to prepare a detailed project report for the project.
