The organisation-- Shramajivi Sanghatana, which has been working for the upliftment of tribals in the district, has strongly opposed the proposed move.

In a statement issued here today, the general secretary of the Sanghatana Vijay Jadhav has asked the state government to desist from taking such a decision giving and threatened not to let the state rulers enter Thane district if they go ahead with the plan.
"If at all the state government is seriously concerned about the tribals in the district, then it should accept our demand of creating an exclusive district for the tribals in the state and locating its headquarters at Jawhar," he said.
