Mumbai - CM Devendra Fadanvis has asked BMC to hand over 17 acres of the plot for Metro 3 project. This has enraged MNS, Congress & SP party who are opposing against giving the free plot to state government. MNS party leader in BMC Sandeep Deshpande has voiced out that in return to the free plot, BMC should get a BKC's free plot of MMRDA. Along with this, rehabilitation of affected residents should also be considered. The state government was demanding free plots for temporary & some for permanent purposes. But BMC was not ready to give the plots and so CM intervened into the matter asking BMC to give the 17-acre plot to Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC).
Shiv Sena party which was always against Metro 3 has gone speechless due to the direct intervention by CM. Meanwhile, Mumbai mayor denied talking on the whole issue.
