Mumbai: After his initial reluctance, MNS chief Raj Thackeray has finally introduced his son Amit to public life. In his maiden innings Amit raised the issue of saving the city’s green lung.
The MNS scion submitted a memorandum to Municipal Commissioner Sitaram Kunte, which sought to draw attention to the ‘silent killing’ of trees in the maximum city. At the meeting with Kunte, Amit maintained that some anti-social elements were using acid to kill the trees. He suggested that the Municipal Corporation ought to employ ‘Bangalore Bug’ to stop the practice. He also demonstrated how the bugs eat away the acidic elements and subsequently save the tree’s roots from weakening.
Earlier this week, Amit and his mother Sharmila had joined the protest at Aarey Milk Colony. Their party is opposing the government’s plan to build a car shed for the Metro in the area by cutting down the trees.
