Re: Why Mumbai never got an underground metro

IG probably wanted to squeeze Bombay* and build up Delhi. She wanted to dislodge the 'Bombay club' - old rich. Hence she encourged Delhi based businessmen like Nandas as also newer ones like Dhirubhai.

Hence you saw all the flyovers and clean roads in Delhi and all slums and sqalor in Bombay.

* as the city was known thenn.
