Reportedly, BMC has cleared the permission to chop off around 2700 trees to construct a car shed in Aarey. And for obvious reasons, this big decision of BMC has shook Mumbaikars. A report also states that Tree Authority of BMC permitted Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) to cut 2,232 trees from the locality, while 469 trees are planned to be relocated for construction of car service. Just like commoners, Bollywood celebs have also come forward to join hands to Save Aarey from deforestation.
A while back, Anushka Sharma shared an Insta story where she wrote, “The ecological balance is not something that we should take for granted. We need to have a serious rethink on the proposed cutting of 2700 tress in Aarey. Save Trees to save ourselves.” On the other hand, Shraddha Kapoor shared an Amul Ad on her Insta account. The ad sees girls holding hands and the line on the poster ad read, “Don’t make them Histree. Amul cut yellow, not green.”
