    We certainly hope it is the right thing to do. All stake holders will have to ensure that Jammu Metro when taken for building is placed in the hands of an exceptionally qualified and experienced company so that no flaws and complicacies are left.

    People of Jammu hail the step taken by the Government and their only concern at the time is that the project should be undertaken when the schedule is drawn and brought to completion according to time schedule.
