Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath today congratulated NDA candidate Ram Nath Kovind on being elected the next President of India.
Sreedharan, 85, had gone to meet the CM with the intention of reducing his work load, in return Adityanath gave him extra responsibilities, reported The Indian Express.
Terming his election a moment of pride and honour, Yogi Adityanath said that under the guidance of Mr Kovind, the honour of the country would be restored. "In fact I'm also adding Varanasi, Agra and Meerut... and also Gorakhpur", said Sreedharan, seated in the conference room of the DMRC office in Kochi, on Thursday afternoon.

Ben Curtis of the United States was the last player to win the Claret Jug on his debut, in 2003 at Royal St George's. Stenson shot a one-under 69 on Thursday in the company of Jordan Spieth and Kim Si-woo.
Sreedharan, known as Metro Man said "the first phase of the 10.5-km line of the Lucknow Metro is ready and waiting for inspection from the Commissioner of Metro Railway Safety".
Last month, Sreedharan said the delay in starting the Lucknow Metro for public use can not be attributed to the change in political power at the helm of Uttar Pradesh. "It's going to be underground and should be a light metro - fewer coaches with less vibration and noise", Sreedharan added. If cities have to survive, it is essential to have the Metro. "We should do at least 200 km per year", he said. However, the metro man dismissed any such reports by saying, "I was never approached...it was all media speculation".
Regarding rumours of his presidential nomination, he laughed and said "You can't be the president of a country at 85!"
