Bengaluru South MP Tejasvi Surya has been actively monitoring the progress of the Metro Yellow Line project, with a keen eye on potential obstacles. In his recent inspection, he highlighted two critical issues that could impact the project's commissioning by early 2024: the availability of coaches and the train control management software.

MP Surya expressed doubts about the February 2024 deadline given by BMRCL officials.
