Attempt to honour ‘Bandra’s most eminent resident’, says Poonam Mahajan; interestingly, Sena has strong presence in her constituency.If all goes to plan, the BJP’s attempt to mend its ties with the Shiv Sena may see the Bandra Terminus railway station be renamed after late Bal Thackeray. BJP MP Poonam Mahajan has already written to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, seeking permission to rename the station as Balasaheb Thackeray terminus.“This will be a fitting tribute to Balasaheb since he lived in Bandra for a large part of his life.

The terminus, which comes within Mahajan’s constituency, is a congested railway station where trains bound for northern and western India are scheduled regularly.

Among the suggestions, made by corporators across party lines, were a few which called for renaming Churchgate and Dadar railway stations after Thackeray. However, none of them materialised.
