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.

India has INCREASED its leaf area way above the global average.

Maharashtra has PLANTED 240 million trees in the last 3 yrs.

Aarey is NOT Forest Land.

Metro will DECREASE net Carbon footprint.

High Court has GIVEN the go-ahead to cut 2700 trees.

ONLY the irrational object.

I wonder if these so-called activists have even read the carefully considered and crafted judgement of the hon'ble High Court. Read it here:… (via @logical_vhi)

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?
