A case has been registered against Shiv Sena Uddhav Thackeray faction leader Aditya Thackeray and other office bearers for illegally inaugurating the Delisle Road Bridge in Lower Parel, said Mumbai Police.
According to media reports, a complaint was filed by the road department of the Mumbai Municipal Corporation at the NM Joshi police station and thereafter a case was registered under sections 143, 149, 326, and 447 of the IPC.
Aditya Thackeray cited "Public suffering" behind opening of the bridge without the permission of the BMC.
"While we waited on the BMC to open the full bridge to people for use, it has been almost 10 days that the other side has been ready and waiting for a VIP to inaugurate it. We inaugurated it last night and today, the BMC under the pressure of Khoke Sarkar has closed it down again, waiting for a govt inauguration, only to trouble the citizens of Mumbai. Why can't it be thrown open for the people instead of waiting for the guardian minister's ego and convenience? Open it!", Aditya Thackeray said in a post on X (formerly Twitter).
Reportedly, the Delisle Road Bridge is a crucial link between Lower Parel, Worli, Prabhadevi, and Currey roads in the west and Byculla and other areas in the east. It was shut on July 24, 2018, after being declared unsafe by the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay.
