Stressing that there will be no compromise on safety issues during Delhi Metro construction, Government on Monday said "all precautions" would be taken to prevent accidents.

"We will never compromise on safety aspects. We will see to it that all precautions are taken to prevent recurrence of such events," Urban Development Minister S Jaipal Reddy told reporters outside Parliament House.

On the Delhi Government's decision not to accept the resignation of Metro Chief E Sreedharan, he said that Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit had consulted him on the issue.

"Now that his resignation has not been accepted, I believe the matter will eventually rest there," he said.

On Sunday, six persons were killed and 15 were injured when an under-construction bridge of Delhi Metro collapsed in South Delhi.
