Congress legislator from Mumbai, Bhai Jagtap, on Thursday hit out at the BJP in the state Legislative Council over the issue of the construction of a car shed in the city’s Aarey Milk Colony for Metro-3, alleging that trees in the Aarey forest will be cut down for the purpose.
He also accused the BJP of facilitating builders to grab the Kanjurmarg land, where the previous Maha Vikas Aghadi government had planned an integrated Metro car shed for three Metros, including Metro-3.
“They are now saying that the trees will not be cut at Aarey but it will be cut. They are trying to destroy Mumbai for their ego,” Jagtap said. In the first Cabinet meeting itself, the government had decided to overturn the decision of moving the Mumbai Metro-3 car shed from Aarey to Kanjurmarg, he alleged.
