Wont give an inch in south Mumbai for Navy housing: Gadkari

A prepaid taxi service is coming up at the international cruise terminal of the Mumbai Port Trust

The minister wasn't happy with the stalling of the jetty because its construction is needed for facilitating government's tourism plan - a floating hotel at Malabar Hill complete with a seaplane service. "We are the government. Why can't they go to the Pakistan border, which they patrol?", said Nitin Gadkari at an event in Mumbai, in the presence of Vice Admiral Girish Luthra, Commander-in-Chief, Western Naval Command.

Fadnavis said that this worldwide cruise terminal is part of the government's four-pronged policy to develop Mumbai on water, sky, ground and underground with water transport, new global airport, roads and flyovers, and the underground Mumbai Metro. "The Navy should be there at the borders, from where terrorists strike and sneak into our country".

"I won't give them even an inch of land".

Gadkari said he chairs a committee for stalled infrastructure projects, adding that projects are cleared "as soon as they come on the agenda".

Giving a piece of his mind to Indian Navy, he demanded why everyone in the navy wants to live in south Mumbai.

Rejecting Naval officers' request for land in south Mumbai, Mr Gadkari said, "Everyone wants to build quarters and flats on prime south Mumbai land". "I heard that you (Navy) gave a stay to the floating jetty plan at Malabar Hill, despite it getting the high court's nod", added Gadkari.

The Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT) will handle the modernization and expansion of the terminal.

Gadkari asked, what the Navy had to do with Malabar Hill. "It has nothing to do in the area", Gadkari said and invited the Navy for talks to resolve the issue.

The Congress. meanwhile, accused Gadkari of insulting the Navy. "They should be guarding the borders", said Gadkari was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.

Reacting to the remarks made by the senior leader of the BJP, Congress leader Randeep S Surjewala ‏tweeted: "Shameful & Unacceptable!" Pseudo-Nationalist BJP now wants to issue certificates of "loyalty' to India's armed forces". "Please don't come to me again".
