Uddhav Thackeray’s Pro-Environmental Approach As Chief Minister Of Maharashtra
Uddhav Thackeray, the former CM of Maharashtra, has been vocal about the importance of the wildlife and bio-diversity of his state. In a recent statement, he talked about how essential trees and their effect is, especially during the pandemic.
These efforts to conserve the environment will also net gains against climate change and prevent natural disasters. The former CM has proven his commitment towards preserving the environment in several decisions taken by his government over the past few years.
Turning 812 acres of land in the Aarey colony into reserve forest land is one of the most important environmentally conscious decisions.
Udhav Thackerey had claimed the land in September of 2020.
The plan was to convert 600 acres of land in Aarey Milk Colony into a reserve forest.
In 2021 the project was updated, and 812 acres of land near the Sanjay Gandhi National Park was handed to the Maharashtra forest department.
According to the former CM, this decision was made to conserve biodiversity and protect the tribal communities’ rights.
The Maharashtra government’s insistence on refusing the MTR railway passing through the Melghat reserve is another important decision by the then CM.
The proposed upgrades to the railway line would cause immense adverse effects on the species of endangered tigers in the Melghat Tiger Reserve.
