A fresh petition was filed before the Kerala High Court on Tuesday seeking a directive to the Union and the State governments to entrust the work of Kochi Metro Rail to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC).

The petition was filed by Balachandran, State secretary, Bharatiya Janata Karshaka Morcha. He said lame excuses were being made to keep the DMRC out of the work on the project.

The court had earlier dismissed as withdrawn a petition filed by Mr. Balakrishan with a liberty to move the court again.
