Standing committee chairman Hemant Rasane said, "As senior leaders, Devendra Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar both instructed to do the neo metro on HCMTR route, we instructed the Maha-metro to start preparation for the DPR.”
Fadnavis instructed the ruling government to execute the hybrid metro on the HCMTR route, where one line would be reserved for private vehicles and the whole route would be elevated. Fadnavis also instructed Pune mayor Murlidhar Mohol and standing chairman Rasane to hand over this work to Maha-metro. In fact, Fadnavis was in favour of introducing one more line for private vehicles. Neo metro was invented by Maha-metro and has been accepted in seven cities in the country.
