Aaditya Thackeray’s favorite project like selling ice cream to Eskimos: AAP

Dubbing Maharashtra Minister of Tourism and Environment Aaditya Thackeray’s pet project “selling ice cream to Eskimos”, the Aam Aadmi party began to raise its guns against the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government ahead of the elections in the Brihan Mumbai Municipal Corporation.

“The MVA government and BMC indulge in Aaditya Thackeray thefts. If the penguins, the zoo plan in Aarey, the cycle path in Powai weren’t silly enough, his favorite new project – a desalination plant in Manori is as silly as selling ice cream to Eskimos,” the AAP said in a statement late Tuesday.

The AAP, which rules Delhi and Punjab, said desalination plants are popular in arid or desert climates that experience low rainfall and low groundwater capacities. “Maybe the Thackerays don’t know that Mumbai falls in the subtropical climatic zone and last monsoon we were lucky to have 3000mm of rainfall! Boasting lakes, 4 rivers, 600 km of nallahs (tributaries) and small lakes, ponds and wells, the landscape of Mumbai nowhere compares to desert climates,” the party said in the statement.

The party also accused the government and the BMC of perpetrating a scam on the Mumbaikars. The desalination project would require a capital of Rs 1,600 crore and another Rs 1,900 crore for operational costs covering a lifespan of 20 years, he said. Aaditya Thackeray’s favorite project “is not just a comedy parody but a Rs 3,520 crore rip-off!” said AAP. “That’s not to mention the new 33 megawatt power plant being built to support it at an additional cost.”

“Instead of focusing on the avoidable water losses that can easily stall demand, Aaditya Thackeray seems to be only interested in her fanciful projects. It is not his personal money that is at stake here, but the hard-earned tax rupees of the Mumbaikars,” said Vice Admiral (Retired) IC Rao, Chairman of the Political Department of Aam Aadmi Party. “The AAP in Delhi has created a robust model by rejuvenating lakes and wells, an activity that the BMC has totally ignored.” he added.

“The major cause of water loss in Mumbai is leaking drains as well as failure to rejuvenate the water table due to high concretion. Additionally, BMC and Aaditya Thackeray failed to resolve the serious problem of impure water, most of South Mumbai has received contaminated water, we advise them to focus on the real issues and not waste our resources on nonsensical projects,” the Chief said. of the AAP, Gopal Jhaveri, also known as the RiverMan of Mumbai.
