Aarey protests: Activists write to Japanese PM to scrap the project

AIR PIC
A group of activists protesting felling of trees for the upcoming metro car shed in Mumbai's Aarey Colony has written a letter to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe seeking his intervention to scrap the project.

Seeking a meeting with officials at the Consulate General of Japan, the group said that a copy of the letter sent to Prime Minister Abe will be handed over to them.

An activist from the group had recently asked Bear Grylls, an English adventurer, to impress upon Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene and prevent the car shed from coming up at Aarey.

The  Rs. 23,136 crore Colaba-Bandra-Seepz Metro Line 3 project is part-funded to the tune of  Rs. 13,235 crore by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

The project to build the car shed in Aarey, one of the city's prime green tract involved felling of more than 2,600 trees over a 30-hectare plot in the area, has come in for criticism from activists and some sections of society.  

Maharashtra Government, especially Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, has expressed its support for the project.
