The TMC Tree Authority members and three corporators of Thane went on a study tour to Chandigarh to know about tree conservation. But this tour has been opposed by several environmental organizations along with the MNS party. The disagreement is on the question that there is a lot of difference in the climatic condition of Chandigarh and Thane, thus there is no use of conducting the tour to Chandigarh. Ignoring other pending projects in Thane, the members of TMC Tree Authority and few corporators are on a study tour in Chandigarh. However, MNS party and few environmental organizations like Daksha Nagrik Manch, Samarth Bharat Vyaspeeth, Janashakti Abhiyaan etc have alleged that the tour is more of a personal visit than a study tour. They further alleged that TMC remains tight-lipped when several trees within TMC jurisdiction are destroyed. Inspite making several complaints no action is taken against this destruction. But they are ready to visit such places in the name of study tours. Therefore, MNS party and the environmental organizations have demanded that TMC should inform the reason behind organizing such tours. From Thane, Manoj Singh for NMTV News.
