'Mathadi' or headload workers are an integral part of the sprawling APMC Market in Vashi as well as various other industrial nodes of Navi Mumbai and the rest ofThane district and unrest among them often affects economic activity in the region.

In his speech, Fadnavis praised Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, who he referred to as "dashing CM" for walking two kilometres to listen to woes of people who will be displaced by the Worli-Sewri elevated road in Mumbai.
