The National Executive Member of the Aam Aadmi Party - Preeti Sharma Menon compared Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis with General Dyer who perpetrated the Jallianwala Bagh massacre - in context of the “Save Aarey” protests.
The AAP leader while urging Mumbai residents to participate in the protests also stressed that one’s blood has to boil against the felling of the trees.
This comparison did not go down well with various social media users.
Despite being criticised for her tweet, the AAP leader decided to brazen it out and alleged that Fadnavis had “unleashed the BJP troll army upon her”.
As reported earlier the delay in Metro Line 3 would release 6,800 tonnes of carbon annually into Mumbai’s atmosphere from the vehicles that occupy the city's roads due to its non completion.
Also in order to offset this deforestation, Mumbai Metro authorities would be planting three times the number of trees in other locations.
