Sharad Pawar asks Modi to leave Mumbai development to CM

NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Thursday said the Prime Minister Narendra Modi should not head the proposed high-level committee for the development of Mumbai.

You are a strong proponent of good governance, Mr Prime Minister. May I request you in the name of good governance not to accept this responsibility for the development of Mumbai and to place it squarely where it belongs: on the shoulders of the CM, the government and people of Maharashtra, Pawar said in a letter to Modi.

There are certain issues between Maharashtra and Gujarat on which both the states differ in opinions and interests. In such a situation, any proposal suggested by CM of Maharashtra will create misunderstanding between people of the two states. I will be the last person who will be happy to see this, Pawar said.

The issue being of such an importance, concerning federal nature of the Republic of India, I am sharing my views and contents of this letter with some important political leaders and thinkers of Maharashtra, Pawar added.
