After taking cognisance of citizens’ and activists’ protests, the Uddhav Thackeray-led MVA government had shifted the Metro car shed from Aarey to Kanjurmarg.

Reacting to the allegations by Aaditya, BJP leader Ashish Shelar said, “The young leader has been speaking without any basic study about the project. A committee headed by a senior IAS officer appointed by the Thackeray government had recommended the car depot at Aarey. The wrong decision by the Thackeray government to shift it to Kanjurmarg, after 25 percent of the car shed had already been constructed, led to a daily loss of <span class='webrupee'>₹</span>5.50 crore for the two and a half years of the Thackeray government.” (Bhushan Koyande/HT Photo)
