The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) would monitor the various infrastructure projects being implemented in the city and also keep a hawk eye on the corrupt practices being involved in them.

This was announced by MNS President Raj Thackeray while inaugurating the office of the MNS roads, Infrastructure and Personnel wing on Monday.

Talking to MNS cadres, Thackeray underlined the fact of large scale corruption in these multi-crore projects.

He pointed out that the estimated cost of the Bandra-Worli sea link during the inauguration was just Rs 300 crore which has now jumped up to Rs 1,500 crores in ten years.

“There is lot of misappropriation in the entire deal and now even the laying of paver block on the city streets and footpaths is a great racket,” said Thackeray. “The time has come to put an end to such practices,” he added.
