Bombay HC refuses to stay work on Rs 36 bn Shivaji memorial in Arabian Sea

The Bombay High Court on Friday refused to stay work on the Rs 36 billion Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj memorial in the Arabian Sea being built by the Maharashtra government. We may observe that the decision to have a project of this nature is a policy decision taken by the state. We are sure that the state government has given appropriate consideration on all the financial issues before taking a policy decision to undertake the project in question, the court said in its order. The petitions had criticised the government for spending Rs 36 billion on the memorial even though the state was reeling under a drought-like situation and facing several other more important issues which needed attention.
