What #lies you will be fed over next few days when it comes to #Aarey

#Influencers telling you how the car-shed in Aarey is not damaging ecology of a leopard🐆 habitat.

#Kanjurmarg, is not feasible because of litigation when truth is there actually was a proposal to save it.
How previous projects inside #AareyForest automatically allows construction of a massive #MetroCarShed in eco-sensitive area. Because the best way to move forward is to repeat the past.

Everyone fighting to save Aarey are rich people who never travel in local trains.

There will be massive cost escalation if car shed is shifted & moved to #Kanjurmarg plot where a car-shed is planned anyway for another line.

Truth is, costs may rise but #Mumbai can afford few thousand crores to save a crucial green lung & leopard 🐆 habitat.

But India haters (disguised as environment activists) don't want you to know the facts about #AareyForest & #MumbaiMetro3
No need trolling bollywood actors who get trapped by the falsehood propagators!
I share facts in this thread:
Faketivists know that 'in the celebration of being a celebrity, its important to feel passionate about environmental concerns.'
So, they use the soft target (Bollywood actors) to obstruct every high importance infra project.
Aam Janata mock/troll them. Real culprits hide behind.
More than 3000 people DIE on Mumbai rails every year. ALMOST 8 EVERYDAY!
Faketivists never protest to make travel human for millions of working-class citizens of Mumbai - who travel Borivali to Churchgate, Dombivili to Byculla in insanely crowded locals everyday, suffer the most.

I was shocked to know that the original project didn't have a plan for a stabling line: CM @OfficeofUT on Mumbai Metro debate

#Kanjurmarg #Aarey
We have selected Kanjurmarg as 3, 4,6 car sheds can be taken up at Kanjurmarg, Aarey was only for one line: CM @OfficeofUT
We are working on getting something that can work for 50-100 years: CM @OfficeofUT on selecting #Kanjurmarg instead of #Aarey land

Shifting metro carshed from #Aarey may cost us a few thousand crores more (Mumbai can afford it) and it may take a couple of more years to complete but the environmental gains from this decision is something future generations will applaud us for.

#SaveAarey #SaveAareyForest
There is no doubt Mumbai urgently needs the #Metro and it is an immensely important project for the city. It needs to be completed as soon as possible. But while achieving this, if we can save green cover in a green starved city like Mumbai, nothing like it.

As someone who uses public transport for personal travel (I don't own a car) I am very keen that the #Metro is completed as soon as possible. But to do so we can't disregard the environmental cost completely. We have to make every effort to save spaces like #Aarey

Unfortunate decision to shift Metro CarShed from Aarey to Kanjurmarg and that too just to satisfy ego❗️
This decision will increase the cost of the project by at least ₹4000 crore and this cost escalation is assessed by the committee appointed by this Government.
Why such a huge burden just to satisfy someone’s ego? Whom does government want to suffer and for what?
The Kanjurmarg site was earlier considered by the Government. But it was under litigation and stayed by Hon HC.
Some private individuals claimed their rights. The stay was requested to be withdrawn.
But Hon HC wanted the amount to be deposited if the claims got settled in future.

आरे येथील मेट्रो कारशेड कांजूरमार्ग येथे हलविण्याचा दुर्दैवी निर्णय हा केवळ अहंकारातून!
कांजूरमार्गला मेट्रो कारशेड नेल्यास 4000 कोटी रुपयांचा अतिरिक्त भुर्दंड सोसावा लागेल, असे याच सरकारने स्थापन केलेल्या समितीने सांगितले.
हा भुर्दंड राज्य सरकार आपल्या अहंकारासाठी कुणाच्या माथी मारू इच्छिते? आणि कशासाठी?
कांजूरमार्गच्या जागेचा यापूर्वी सरकारने विचार केला. पण त्यावर मा. उच्च न्यायालयाची स्थगिती होती. काही खाजगी व्यक्तींनी त्या जागेवर दावा सांगितला. स्थगिती मागे घ्यावी, म्हणून विनंती करण्यात आली, तर न्यायालयाने दावे पुढील काळात निकाली निघाले, तर त्यासाठीची रक्कम भरण्यास सांगितले.

The Family's Arrogance is our state's worst enemy...
Where personal agendas have become more important than the welfare of the citizens..
Where a decision taken to satisfy one's ego is now being masqueraded as "Saving the Environment"
Reminder 1) An independent committee instituted by the MVA government itself has said that the shifting of the Metro Car Shed from #aarey to #kanjurmarg will cost an additional Rs.4000 Crores.
How does the state government plan to fund this project ?
Reminder 2) The #kanjurmarg land was previously proposed by the @Dev_Fadnavis Govt. But the the complications caused by claims by private land owners meant the High Court had asked the state to deposit Rs.2400 CR in 2015 incase the decision goes in favor of the land owners.

Don’t we all love fun facts about wildlife? In our #WildAboutFacts series, we bring you some striking images and facts about the animals around us. Let’s begin the series with #Leopards.

Join the discussion and post your #leopard images!

#Leopards are actually the smallest among the genus of big cats. These elusive #cats prefer to hide in trees or in caves during the day.

#Leopards are not picky about their food and feed on a wide range of animals. They crouch low and sneak on their prey before attacking them.

"They were chopping #trees, so we went there to protect trees....You are educated, I am unlettered. Still, I believe that trees should not be felled," says Pramila Bhoir, a cultivator and homemaker who was locked up for 2 days for protesting the felling of 2600 trees in #Aarey. ImageImage
In the process, the houses of many #Adivasis have been demolished,their farmlands taken over. This latest 'development' project for the mumbai metro was one of several that have been taking over the 3200 acre #Aarey tract that was once home to 27 #Adivasi hamlets. ImageImage

At the Supreme Court for the hearing on the #AareyForest case.

On 7 October, special bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Deepak Gupta had stayed the cutting of trees by Mumbai Metro authorities for a metro car shed.

The case reached the SC because the MMRCL moved to cut down around 2600 trees on the night of 4 October, just hours after the Bombay HC dismissed a bunch of petitions that had challenged the tree-felling.

Legal issues at play @TheQuint :…
On 7 October, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta had informed the SC that "Whatever had to be cut has been cut. No further cutting of trees is required."

Afterwards, MMRCL clarified that 2141 trees had been cut, and that the SC hadn't prohibited them from construction.

Should I do a small thread on how @realDonaldTrump would have tweeted if he was pitted against the #Aarey protestors ?
Here goes. No malice for anyone. Pure fun.
1. WITCH HUNT - failed newspaper times of India claims I am responsible for massacre of trees in Mumbai. Total Lies. Media is pathetic. Environment is in great shape. #MakingLoggingGreatAgain
2. BOLLYWOOD PHONY Ashoke Pandit who should cut down cheese & sugar & failed actress Raveena , who never did a good movie after Mohra claim Metro Shade can be moved. TOTAL LIE! Devendra Fadnavis is a very smart man who has my total support. Bollywood should be investigated.

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 is dotted with cattle shed, government quaters, entertainment aeeas, shops etc the attached bifurcation of areas by use is enlightening. Can it be called a forest?
A view of the cattle sheds and the grasslands the primary purpose of Aareys existence

The approval for cutting of 2,700 trees by BMC despite a historic 1,20,000 plus objections being acknowledged by the tree authority, is a betrayal of Mumbaikars, we urge Mumbaikars to take to the ballot to vote out those responsible! 1/7

The party has always stood shoulder to shoulder with the 'Save Aarey' movement, & has organised Satyagrahas, mobilized support on the ground and even moved court when due process wasn't followed. 2/7
We feel it pertinent to point out that we aren't against the metro, we are against the proposed site of the metro-3 shed, which can be relocated to any of the 13 alternative sites, which the Govt of Maharashtra had accepted and found feasible. 3/7
