Union minister for Shipping, Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari, on Monday announced his ambitious plans of constructing a structure taller than Dubai's iconic 163-floor Burj Khalifa in Mumbai.
"In Mumbai, we are the number one landlord. The iconic Taj Hotel, the Ballard Estate, the Reliance building, we (MbPT) are the owners. There are beautiful plans to develop the huge land with the port," Gadkari told PTI. The plans are ready and we are awaiting Centre's nod, the Minister said.
