Congress wants Gadkari to say sorry for Navy slur

Mumbai Port Trust To Create World's Largest Garden In The City Nitin Gadkari

Hitting out at Union minister Nitin Gadkari over his remarks against the Navy, Mumbai Congress chief Sanjay Nirupam said that real estate interests seemed to hold more importance to the minister than national security. Navy should concentrate on securing our borders, instead of knocking down developmental projects, he said. "Please don't come to me again", Gadkari said. Why does everyone [in the Navy] want to stay in South Mumbai?

South Mumbai is home to a sizeable presence of the Navy and houses the headquarters of the Western Naval Command, as well as the naval residential quarters at Navy Nagar in Colaba in south Mumbai and is therefore strategically important area where any development should be carried out only after assessing its strategic implications. Why should I give land to them.

Congress's chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said the "pseudo-nationalist" Bharatiya Janata Party now wanted to give "certificates of loyalty" to the armed forces. Mr Gadkari's public displeasure came in the backdrop of the Navy declining permission for building a floating jetty at Malabar Hill in south Mumbai, where a floating hotel and seaplane service are being planned. I am not going to give them even an inch of land.
