New Delhi, Nov 4 (UNI) The Chairman and Managing director of the Delhi Metro Railway Corporation E Sreedharan today refused to comment on the Andhra Pradesh Government's decision to sue him for ''tarnishing its image'' by frequently levelling ''false and baseless'' charges against the Rs 12,132-crore metro rail project taken up for Hyderabad.

Addressing a press conference here after the submission of report of the three-member committee instituted to look into the October 19 accident on the Laxmi Nagar Metro site, Mr Sreedharan, replying to a question on the Andhra Government decision to file a defamation case against him, said he would not like to comment on the same.

''Right now, I would like to only concentrate on report on the October 19 accident. I would not like to comment on any other matter,'' Mr Sreedharan said.

At a press conference in Hyderabad, Andhra Finance Minister K Rosaiah, Municipal Administration Minister Koneru Ranga Rao and Managing Director of Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL) N V S Reddy said the state Government would file a defamation case against Dr Sreedharan as he had not tendered an unconditional apology sought by the State government in its letter to him.
