Dainik BhaskarOct 09, 2019, 08:23 AM IST Sports Desk. Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma tweeted on Tuesday and supported the rescue of Mumbai's Aarey Jungle. Rohit has appealed to the government and the administration that he should worry about thousands of animals reared in Aarey forest. It was proposed to cut 2700 trees to build a metro car shed in Aarey Colony, Mumbai. Which was banned by the Supreme Court. At present, 2141 trees have been cut down.
Earlier, a number of celebrities and political parties including Shiv Sena, Aam Aadmi Party, film actors Farhan Akhtar, Dia Mirza and Swara Bhaskar have come out in support of Aare campaign.
Rohit tweeted, even though there is not much left in this news, but cutting of trees is not right. It is associated with the life and death of people. Due to Aarey forest, greenery remains in Mumbai and there is a slight drop in the temperature here. How can we snatch it up? We should also not forget the thousands of animals who will have no place to live after the forest is cut.
Even if there is more to the story, nothing is worth cutting down something so important. Part of Mumbai being slightly greener & slight difference in the temperature is mainly because of #AareyColony. How can we take that away, not to mention thousands of animals will displace.
