PATNA: Bihar Urban Development and Housing Minister Maheshwar Hazari today charged the Centre with meting out step-motherly treatment to the state by not giving its in principle approval of DPR for Patna Metro. "It has been more than a year since the Patna Metro project's Detailed Project Report (DPR) is pending for clearance with the Central government. The Centre has not given its in-principle approval to the project for metro in Patna. The Government of India should give its approval to the metro project at the earliest," Hazari said in the state Legislative Council. "The Central government is meting out step-motherly treatment to the state and is not giving approval due to political rivalry...It is okay if the Centre does not give a penny to the project but it should just give the clearance to the DPR at the earliest. We will complete the project on our own resources," Hazari said.
