BMC has no record on installation of statue in Shivaji Park
An application was filed under the Right to Information (RTI) Act seeking the details of installation of the statue of Chhatrapati Shivaji in the Shivaji Park of Dadar in Mumbai where the last rites of Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray were performed.
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), in the reply to the application, has said that it doesn’t have the record of the date of installation of the statue in the park. However BMC did answer the other queries such as the history of the park and the date when the park was rechristened as Shivaji Park. It has provided in the reply a copy of the notice through which the Municipal Corporation changed the name from Mahim Park to Shivaji Park in order to commemorate the tri-centenary of Shivaji.
