Raj once again fires anti-North India salvo
July 07, 2008 16:14 IST
Maharashtra Navnirman Sena President Raj Thackeray has appealed to South Indian states to unite against the North on the issue of implementation of the draft Coastal Management Zone.
According to Raj, higher FSI is used for development of Mumbai. In case, the notification is implemented,granting additional FSI would become impossible. He agreed that it was neccessary to protect marine life and environment. "But too much of anything is bad,"he added.
Thackeray also pointed out that if Mumbai's civic development is stopped due to CMZ, it would affect the economy of the state and the country.
The CMZ notification seeks protection and sustainable development of the coastal stretches and marine environment through sustainable coastal zone management practices based on sound scientific principles, taking into account the vulnerability of the coast to natural hazards, sustainable livelihood, security for local communities, and conservation of ecologically and culturally significant coastal resources.
