Mumbai: A Shiv Sena MP on Thursday demanded that the Dadar metro rail station, which is coming up near the

party's headquarters, be renamed as 'Shiv Sena Bhavan'.

Rajya Sabha member Anil Desai made this demand in a letter written to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.

The Shiv Sena Bhavan, the party's headquarters, is located at Dadar in central Mumbai.

Desai said the Western Railway as well as the Central Railway already have two stations named as Dadar in the area.

He argued that in view of the existing railway stations of the same name, there was no need of christening the metro station, part of the Colaba-Bandra-Seepz Line or Line 3, also as Dadar.

"The metro station concerned is coming up near the historic structure 'Shiv Sena Bhavan' constructed by late party chief Balasaheb Thackeray. Bus stops near it are also known as 'Shiv Sena Bhavan'," Desai said in the letter.

He observed that some stations on the metro line, such as Science Museum, Siddhivinayak and Shitaladevi, were named based on their proximity to these places.

"Considering these aspects, I insist that Dadar metro station is renamed as Shiv Sena Bhavan," Desai said.
