Plans for a giant statue of warrior king Shivaji off the Mumbai coast - a project loaded with political implications in Maharashtra - have been cleared by the union environment ministry. The statue, seen as a symbol of Maratha pride, was a poll promise made by almost every political party in Maharashtra.
