The cutting of trees at Aarey Colony in Mumbai has been the concern for the Mumbaikars. They voiced against the act before it was executed and soon were joined by the Bollywood celebs who made the voice against the action tyrant. As the BMC authorities decided to cut the trees people came out of the street to agitate and not less than 29 were arrested by the police with the lathi charge being carried out by the Mumbai Police to stop the agitation.
Many Bollywood celebs came out and reacted hard on this issue and called it no less than a massacre, tyrant, and barbaric, which was propelled due to greed, money and similar things by the concerned authorities carrying out in the only green belt remaining in the city. Let’s check how different Bollywood celebs reacted as under:
Swara Bhaskar – The Tanu Weds Manu actress called it as the act of greed, foolishness, and hubris and protested against the acts of authorities on Twitter with her placard. She then added that we would love to see our destruction.
Dia Mirza – She called the act as brutality as the authorities acted just the opposite of what they promised earlier. She said the trees were decided to be translocated earlier but they are now being cut for their own vested interest.
