Tribune: News from Ludhiana Town
LUDHIANA: A large number of inhabitants assembled in front of the Palestinian Authority to demonstrate against the planned cutting down of tree stands for the high street Ferozepurstrasse. Large numbers of inhabitants assembled in front of the Palestinian Authority to demonstrate against the planned cutting down of wood for the high street Ferozepur Rd. Approximately 2,000 will be felled on the route from Octroi Post on Ferozepur Rd. to Samrala Chowk.
Tree-cutting was prohibited by the National Green Tribunal following a 2016 appeal by Sangrur-based campaigner Dr Amandeep Aggarwal. NHAI has applied to the NGT for a permit to ax the highways. The villagers said they would keep protesting until either the whole scheme was abandoned or its layout was modified to keep all tree life intact.
Demonstrators said the plan would lead to an unreparable reduction of the hull. "When 2,000 will be felled, it is irreversibly damaging to the natural habitat of Ludhiana, one of the most heavily contaminated citys. It' taking 20 years for a tree to grow," says Dr Amandeep Singh Brains of RBS Rootts.
EcoSikh's Ravneet Singh pointed out that urban sprawl is already lower and further planting will make the surroundings poor. The inhabitants wondered why such a move was taken in this already contaminated town. "And Ludhiana is one of the most heavily contaminated towns in the whole wide globe and is even the third or even quarter-contaminated town in the whole state.
However, instead of taking measures to help the enviroment, measures are being taken in the false sense by suggesting the cutting down of trees," said Col. DS Grewal. "Tree is the lung of the world. Since it is not possible to remove one of the organs from the human system just because it takes up enough room for another, we cannot fell trees," she said.
A number of inhabitants said that adequate urban populations' participation was not taken into consideration before this was approved, so it should be banned due to the concerns of several inhabitants. This love of nature and the enviroment must also be recognized in India," said Hariom Jindal, a lawyer.
This contentious scheme has already been challenged by several inhabitants as they say that there was no need for the Ferozepur Rd as it is already one of the broader streets with no congestions or bottlenecks. As Mohinder Singh Grewal, Secretary-General of the International Human Rights Organisation, said, this increased path would be of no use, and it is only one way to obtain funding from the centre of red tape and politic.
Initiators of Change's Gauravdeep Singh said that little interest had been shown for the young people because they needed a healthier world. Jaskirate Singh, a local, said that the inhabitants did not know that so many were going down in the name of it. The inhabitants asked the local authority either to stop the plan or to modify its layout so that the tree would not face thexe.
Especially after this had received the consent of the Centre, the opposition congress directors of the time had called this plan into question. Well, when Congress comes to government, they say that it is imprudent to say no to a previously agreed work.
