Shiv Sena opposes metro depot at Aarey Colony



The latest entrant in opposing the Colaba-Bandra-SEEPZ metro rail car depot at Aarey Milk Colony is Shiv Sena. Not only have they aired their opposition to the depot but also to the entire 32km-long project.

In the past one month, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) too had extended their support to a group of citizens and environmentalists under the banner ‘Save Aarey’.

Interestingly, Sena’s opposition to metro rail is the latest issue in the list of their rift with ally BJP. Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis heads the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) and Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC), a subsidiary which is implementing the project.

Visiting the car depot site at Aarey Milk Colony on Friday, Yuva Sena chief Aaditya Thackeray not only extended support to saving Aarey Milk Colony but also opposed the metro project. More info
