Fadnavis responds to Uddhav Thackeray's decision of stopping Metro car-shed work in Aarey

Fadnavis responds to  Uddhav Thackeray's decision of stopping Metro car-shed work in Aarey

On November 29, CM Uddhav Thackeray while addressing the press conference said that, "I have ordered to stop the work of the Aarey metro car shed project today. The Metro work will not stop but till the next decision, not a single leaf of Aarey will be cut".

The Aarey activists, who had been at loggerheads with former Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, applauded the new chief minister's order to halt work at Aarey metro car shed. They had been constantly been talking about the Aarey issue even though over 2700 trees in the area had been cut. Ever since the results of the election have been declared they have been pestering Aaditya Thackeray, who had been very vocal about this issue when the trees were being cut. 

Even when the new government was taking charge, the Aarey activists were of the opinion that since all who had been opposing the trees cutting namely NCP, Congress and Shiv Sena are now together, they should take this up. Since this is indeed one of the first major announcements from Maha Aghadi government in talks volumes regarding the game-plan they have ahead.

Minutes after this announcement was made ex-Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis took to Twitter and expressed his displeasure against the move and termed it as anti-development. He used the #SaveMetroSaveMumbai

 He even went on to add why the timing of this project will be crucial and might have an adverse impact on the further investments in the city.

Looks like the development vs Environment conversation will continue to be a big debate topic in the current Maharashtra Assembly.
