Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Saturday responded to DMRC former chief E Sreedharan’s political entry and to the criticisms directed at him.

Responding to the reporters’ question on Sreedharan’s comment that he wishes to be the Chief Minister of Kerala, CM said, “Isn’t Sreedharan a great man, a huge technocrat, a person the nation conferred with Padma Shri. He is eligible to hold any position. Let things move as per his wishes”.

E Sreedharan on Friday had said he was ready to become the Chief Minister if Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) comes to power in Kerala.

"If BJP comes to power in Kerala, I am ready to become the chief minister. The party has not asked me till now as it is too premature. But if BJP asks me, I am willing to take up the post and show how a state can be run efficiently like we are running DMRC," Sreedharan had said.
