Mr. Abu Azmi, Lawmaker, SP said, “We are going to write letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and CM Fadnavis and suggest them to name coastal road after late Dr. Kalam. Dr. was a great president and a noble personality, so naming the coastal road after him will be a great way to give him a tribute.”
