In order to save the trees being cut in the saws of Mumbai, the Supreme Court has ordered that no trees will be cut and the status quo should be maintained. With this, the next hearing of the case has been fixed till October 21. The court has also ordered that those who have been detained to save the trees should be released immediately.
So far, the government has cut down how many trees and how many saplings have been planted in return and what is their status. At the same time, the court has also said that if 1 or 2 per cent area is also in the forest area then trees cannot be cut. This is a matter of order.
Advocate Tushar Mehta argued that environment is an important concern for all of us. Plants are being planted. On this, Justice Arun Mishra said that planting saplings is a different thing, taking care of them is a different thing. During the hearing, advocate Gopal Shankar Narayan appearing on behalf of the students said that Aare Colony was declared in 2012 that it is a forest land.
