Yediyurappa said that the Centre has not given its approval to resume Metro services

Bengaluru Metro will resume services soon after the state government took necessary precautionary measures in this regard, said Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa.

Yediyurappa told reporters in Bengaluru on Thursday that the government was taking steps to bring normalcy in public life in the state.

"Despite COVID-19 pandemic normalcy in public life is being restored step by step. Taking all the necessary precautionary measures, Metro services will be restarted soon," Yediyurappa said.

Yediyurappa said that five months after its operations were halted due to coronavirus outbreak and subsequent lockdowns, the Centre has not given its approval to resume Metro services. The chief minister also said that his government was committed for the all-round development of the state including Bengaluru.

He was speaking after naming a flyover in Bengaluru after revolutionary freedom fighter Sangolli Rayanna.

Yediyurappa said improving the basic infrastructure of the tech city was the priority of his government and all the necessary measures are being taken to achieve it.

Meanwhile, the state government officials said that they are waiting for Unlock 4.0 norms, which is expected to be announced in the first week of next month, by the Centre.

The officials also reportedly prepared standard operating procedures (SOP) for resuming the operations.
