While Piyush Goyal charged the state of stalling the bullet train project, Sena accused the Centre of not cooperating over the Metro car shed project.
The MMRDA in its application said without the construction of the car shed, Metro lines 3 (Colaba-Bandra- SEEPZ), 4 (Kasarwadavali-Wadala) and 6 (Lokhandwala-Vikhroli) cannot be commissioned.
The new rate came into force on February 24 and will remain effective till June 15 this year, the official said.
The year also saw Shiv Sena's 'fiery Hindutva' stand mellowing down, with Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray speaking of taking everyone along.
Uddhav lamented that the Centre had moved court against his government over the issue of proposed Metro car shed at Kanjurmarg and said he was open for resolution of the issue through dialogue.
Besides, the Bombay High Court also ordered an interim stay on the state’s move to locate the carshed at Kanjurmarg.
After the HC order, there were reports in a section of the media about the state government exploring some other potential sites for the car shed, including the Bandra Kurla Complex.
The erstwhile BJP government, headed by Fadnavis, had chosen Aarey Colony, a green belt in Mumbai, for the car shed, part of Mumbai Metro 3 line.
