BJP leader MLA Ashish Shelar while slamming the Thackeray government for proposing the land at Kanjurmarg for Metro 3 stated that the government is laying the foundation for a scam of ₹50,000 crores.

The government led by CM Uddhav Thackeray had earlier decided to shift the metro car shed from Aarey to Kanjurmarg in order to protect the greenery at the Aarey forests which led to the BJP leaders slamming the state government. However, despite the criticism, the site was handed over to MMRDA and permission was granted to build a car shed for both Metro 3 and Metro 6 routes.

The dispute regarding the Metro car shed has been ongoing for a while now. According to environmental activists, Aarey is a forest area and any construction work would hamper the ecological balance. On the other hand, the Devendra Fadnavis regime last year highlighted that the long-term gains of the project would offshoot the temporary damage caused due to the axing of trees. 

In the recent past, after the Centre ordered to halt the work of the car shed at Kanjurmarg, BJP MLA Ashish Shelar had slammed the Maha Vikas Aghadi government. In a letter addressed to Maharashtra Chief Secretary Sanjay Kumar, the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) claimed that the land allocated for the car shed in Kanjurmarg belongs to the Union government. The DPIIT, further requested Maharashtra Chief Secretary Sanjay Kumar to restrain the MMRDA from developing the car shed at the Kanjurmarg plot.

Furthermore, Shelar had added that the state government had not asked for the permission of the Salt Commissioner. Moreover, he stated that the people of Mumbai were suffering due to Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray's "arrogant" style of functioning.
