Ac­cord­ing to the cen­tral gov­ern­ment’s plan, the SPV will be an au­ton­o­mous body with the right to de­velop the no­ti­fied area. It will have the fi­nan­cial and ad­min­is­tra­tive con­trol over the city. This sidelin­ing of the lo­cal self gov­ern­ment is a blow to democ­racy. - NE­TRA SHIRKE, Stand­ing com­mit­tee chair­per­son

The fi­nal com­po­si­tion of the SPV and the de­tailed project re­port would have come af­ter we got se­lected in the race. While the ap­proval of the gen­eral body is a con­di­tion for qual­i­fi­ca­tion in the race, we are still not out of it as the state gov­ern­ment’s di­rec­tive is fi­nal. - DI­NESH WAGH­MARE, Mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner

They want ev­ery­thing for them­selves. Since they will not have fi­nan­cial con­trol on the project they have re­jected it. This is go­ing to prove dear to them as the peo­ple of the city will not for­give them for deny­ing the city such large scale mod­ern de­vel­op­ment. - MANDA MHA­TRE, BJP MLA

Over 4.5 lakh peo­ple gave their sug­ges­tions, thou­sands of chil­dren took part in com­pe­ti­tions, a war room was cre­ated, marathon was con­ducted and pro­grammes and func­tions held. What made the NCP de­cide against the project only now?- VI­JAY CHOUGULE, Shiv Sena leader
