But Media is only focused on Shivaji Memorial project.BTW it is not just statue . Check the whole plan .
1.Why is media not talking about mammoth jobs both Temporary and permanent to be created by all projects , including Shivaji one.
2. Why is media not talking about revenue which will be generated by Memorial which in coming times will become best tourist spot in Mumbai
3.CM Devendra Fadnavis has already promised local fishermen monopoly to run the jetty and boat services that will ferry tourists to the mid-sea memorial, giving them chance to have alternative vocation. which in turn will uplift them economically.
4.Shivaji memorial has already become green project as it will consume all rubble that will be generated by Metro and road projects..
5.Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has approved proposal to use rubble from the 33.5-km-long Colaba-Seepz underground Metro line for building the memorial in the sea.An estimated 5-6 million cubic metre of hard rock is expected to be excavated from tunnelling activity and building stations for the Metro project. This would translate into an estimated 10-12 million cubic metre of sand on crushing.”
