Shivaji statue controversy continues

Chhatrapati Shivaji’s statue will come up in the Arabian sea only, said Maharashtra's chief minister Prithviraj Chavan, putting an end to the controversy sparked off by his deputy Ajit Pawar. On the eve of the budget session, Pawar had told the media that an alternative site was finalized as CRZ norms would not allow a statue in the sea. Chavan told the state legislative council on Monday the state government would obtain all the necessary clearances from the Centre within a year and over the next five years it would strive to complete the project.
