Around 34 trees were axed on Old Nagardas Road in Andheri (East). In the pretext of widening road, the permission was granted to cut the trees. The work has not started but the contractors are busy cutting trees.
Residents and local shopkeepers raised their voice against the contractors. Resident Uma Modi told Mumbai Live that Save Tree volunteers registered the complaint against the contractors.
From Monday onwards civic workers and contractors will resume tree cutting in regard with that residents will organize Chipko Andolan to avoid falling off trees. We tried contacting officers of K/East ward but they were unavailable for the comment.
