"I am not making any announcement but only expressing my wish," Gadkari said, according to the India's Economic Times report.

"I want a huge building to come up in Mumbai. I want a structure taller than the Burj Khalifa, one of the tallest buildings of the world, to come up in Mumbai near the seas. It will be called Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj tower," he continued.

The minister said the tower's first 30 floors would be reserved for a convention centre, the next 30 for restaurants, another set of 30 floors for hotels, and 20 floors for malls, along with numerous other floors underground as parking space.
