#ForestSurveyofIndia has declared #Maharashtra as the ONLY state which has registered a GROWTH in #forestCover in past years

Not just #forests, but trees outside jungles have also seen a spike
253 m2 rise in #trees
82 km2 rise in #mangroves

Survival rate of the 23 crore trees planted

2016 72 %
2017 80 %
2018 85 %

Impressive, isn’t it?

More focus has been on areas of the state with LESS forest cover like Marathwada, Western Maharashtra & Vidarbha

Thread for #SaveAareyExpose
by certain Religious groups,NGOs with Vested Interests who are trying their best to Sabotage Govt of India Developmental Projects for their illicit gains
They did the same in Kudankulam nuclear plant, konkan railway projkt

Max Retweet to know Truth
Why selective protest against, 'Metro Shed' only, while there is absolute silence on 'Film City'& 'Royal Palms' etc. #AareyExpose

Just think...
This photo explains a lot. Just see how tiny area will be used for metro car shed. Look at the yellow part.

So why this HALLA GULLA over a small area which is given for construction of #MetroRailway3
Why is Catholic church up in arms against this project ?

#Aarey facts #Activists don’t tell us

Environmental Impact Assessment (#EIA) report of having @MumbaiMetro3 carshed in #Aarey was prepared not by #MMRCL or any govt agencies but by a neutral #Japanese agency - #JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency)?

#Aarey Facts we don’t know 2

In Oct 2018, #MumbaiHC accepted govt’s argument that the #Aarey land will not be used for ANY #commercial project and a monitoring and supervising mechanism would be in place to ensure that the #conditions imposed on the MMRCL are met

#Aarey Facts we don’t know 3

Only #2 % of #Aarey land is used for #Metro

There are no #Adivasi padas nor #wildlife per se in the 30-hectare area, which is bound on 3 sides by major roads-
Jogeshwari-Vikhroli Link Rd
Marol-Maroshi road &
Goregaon-Mulund Link Road

Shocking revealations by @Dev_Fadnavis

When it is was decided to build @MumbaiMetro3 carshed inside #Aarey, govt received 13,000 objections of which 10,000 were put up on a #Bengaluru based website.

The handwritten objections recd were a few 100

#SC has already said that the proposed area for car depot in #Aarey is #notAForest or a place rich in #biodiversity, but it is #Govt land where permission can be given

It has also ruled out the #feasibility of any #alternatives

. @Dev_Fadnavis has dubbed @MumbaiMetro3 project as a #CarbonUltraPositive

He said: We will be putting 13,000 trees in place of the trees that will be cut

Plus, his govt will be planting #50crore trees across the State of which #33crore have already been planted

What is the name of NGO that is opposing Metro Car Shed ?

VanShakti , if I m not wrong.
This NGO had applied for FCRA registration.

It was denied to them in public interests.

After denial, Van shakti doesn't follow due process. They write an open letter to PM.

Who are the esteemed post holders of this NGO ?

One of them is Kavita mallya. Does the name rings a bell ?

She is same Kavita Mallya who with with GreenPeace who had to close shop due to FCRA Violations.

This handle is a public service to bust myths and lies being spread by vested interests about #AareyColony #AareyAikaNa #AareyAiklaNa
1/ About Aarey being a forest area
Aarey is not a forest. This issue is settled in the High Court. The notification for the reservation for a car shed in the Aarey Milk colony is also legally tenable and settled in the court.
2/ Inside Aarey, you have Sankraman Studios, Aarey milk colony cow and buffalo sheds, hutments and Royal Palms. All of these have good permissions under various state govts.

Mumbai Metro 1 carries 4 lakh passengers everyday & reduce their travel time from 70 mnts to 17 mnts. Had these passengers travlled by road, what would hv happened? Only 1 Metro line cannot suffice the public transport need of the city. #AareyAikaNa
Mumbai city desperately needs enhancement of its rail based public transport network. Suburban railways carry 80 lakh passengers per day. Once Metro network is commissioned it would carry about 45 lakh people by 2031 and 1 cr people by 2041 as per MMRDA CTS.#AareyAikaNa
Inadequate and hence unsafe public transport infrastructure of today has enabled huge rise in private vehicles, app based taxies and most importantly two wheelers in the city which r chocking the roads and air of the city. #AareyAikaNa
