The Opposition is calling the work as an election stunt by the ruling while the latter is saying that it is in the name of development. Looks like the proposed Shivaji Maharaj memorial to be built near Marine Drive amidst the sea with an estimated cost of Rs 350 crores has come under the political eye. While the Opposition BJP party has expressed doubts over the ambitious project some media groups have termed it as a mere wastage of public funds. However, despite the allegations, the state is stern on its decision on developing the memorial that would contribute to the architectural value of the city. This is what Mumbai Congress President Kripashankar Singh had to say on the allegations of the Opposition. With cameraperson Raju Sharma, Dhiraj Mishra for NMTV News.
