The CM was received warmly by the people wherever he went, further enhancing the chances of the win.
The CM was also questioned on the decision of the axing of 2,700 trees in the Aarey forest. Over one lakh people objected to the proposal which called for a public meeting. The public meeting was attended by Zoru Darius, who was the first one to question the chopping of the trees, along with 500 other people to protest against the decision. The felling of the trees in the Mumbai Aarey colony is to happen for the construction of a car shed for the metro in the Aarey colony.

He also spoke of Japan, further adding that Japan would not have participated in this unless this would have been 'sustainable'.
