The Navi Mumbai Worldwide Airport can be named after Shiv Sena founder late Bal Thackeray, City Growth Minister Eknath Shinde has stated. The airport, arising in neighbouring Navi Mumbai, is predicted to alleviate the strain on the Mumbai worldwide airport.
Bal Thackeray, the daddy of Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, had floated Shiv Sena in 1966 and served as its chief till his dying in 2012.
Some native politicians had demanded that the brand new airport be named for farmer chief late D B Patil. Eknath Shinde stated that the CM has assured the DB Patil Motion Samiti that another challenge can be named after the farmer chief.
“We’ve lots of respect for D B Patil. The Chief Minister has requested the motion committee to advocate every other challenge (to be named after Patil),” Shinde, a senior Shiv Sena chief, stated.
“One assembly has taken place (with the committee) and another will happen. A optimistic final result is predicted,” he added.
Metropolis and Industrial Growth Company (CIDCO), the state-run planning company which is executing the greenfield airport challenge, proposed that or not it’s named after Bal Thackeray.
In the meantime, the BJP on Thursday shaped a human chain in Alibaug city of Raigad district to press for its demand to provide late PWP chief DB Patil’s title to the challenge. The saffron get together has opposed the CIDCO decision to call the challenge after Bal Thackeray.
