The City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) has already passed a resolution to name the project after Bal Thackeray. It is the nodal government agency for this project.
However, the BJP is against the proposal. On Thursday, the BJP formed a human chain to strongly voice its demand. The local unit of BJP formed a human chain in front of the Collectorate in Alibag town of Raigad district. About 200 workers and leaders participated in it.
