    A slight variation of the second sentence would be:
    .
    The Delhi Metro, a once flawless project in New Dehli, is plagued with controversy.

    Nope. That sentence has the dependent clause modifying controversy. You could say:
    .
    Currently, the Dehli Metro, once a flawless project in New Dehli, is plagued with lots of controversy.
