The BJP leader reiterated that relocating the car shed project from Aarey will lead to wastage of time and money as 'the work is 80% complete'
The high court has told the Maharashtra government to wait for further orders on the metro car shed project.
Despite attacks, the Maharashtra government will not be deterred but more determined to continue to serve the state without bias
Uddhav Thackeray slams the BJP for opposing the shifting of the metro car shed project to Kanjurmarg from the green lung Aarey Colony.
In a webcast, Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray said the project will be shifted to government land in Kanjurmarg and no cost will be incurred for the purpose.
Aditya Thackeray had last year sought Ashwini Bhide's transfer for ordering felling of trees at the Aarey colony.
The CM has ordered a review of all on-going development projects in the state, including the Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train.
The Bombay High Court had on October 4 refused to declare Aarey Colony a forest
A counsel, appearing for the PIL petitioners seeking a stay on felling of trees, alleged that in the garb of clearing of trees from the area, the construction work for the project is going on.
The apex court on Monday restrained authorities from cutting anymore trees in Aarey Colony in Mumbai to build a Metro car shed.
Shiv Sena in its mouthpiece 'Saamna' said that when the latter happened people broke down. However, here neither the Prime Minister got emotional, nor the Chief Minister seemed worried.
The apex court on Sunday set up a special bench on the basis of a letter addressed to the Chief Justice of India by one Rishav Ranjan against the cutting of the trees.
This comes after a local court on Saturday sent 29 people to judicial custody for five days while police detained 55 others in connection with protests.
The protesters and activists began gathering at the colony asking why the authorities couldn't wait till a petition was filed in the Supreme Court.
In a veiled dig at Yuva Sena chief Aaditya Thackeray, the Nationalist Congress Party asked where the 'fake environment lovers' were when the hacking of trees began late Friday night.
