(MMRC) on February 14 is much higher than what they publicly declared In its submissions to the National Green Tribunal (NGT) the metro implementing body had claimed that only about 500 trees will be cut The MMRC had earlier claimed that 1200 trees were likely to be cut in the green area and another 900 would be transplanted However owing to the continued pressure by the activists the MMRC decided to redesign the depot in such a way that lesser trees would be affected With this the depot is to be constructed only on 25 hectares land as opposed to the earlier 30 hectares The MMRC claims that the survey to finalise the final tree count is still incomplete “An internal research survey and preparation of the proposal for the Tree Authority is still on We will be able to share all the details only once it is fully ready” said a spokesperson from the MMRC In the Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) report given to Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) the funding agency for the project in 2012 the MMRC had mentioned that only 177 trees will be cut across the 33 km alignment and 412 will be transplanted However the MMRC now intends to cut 1074 trees and transplant 1727 trees However the tender document which invites bidders for the construction of the car depot reveals that 3184 trees are to be cut and 200 trees are to be transplanted Depending on the girth of the trees the MMRC will be paying anything between Rs 940 to Rs 28548 for cutting them This altogether will cost them a whopping Rs 33249313 just for tree cutting Meanwhile the price mentioned for transplanting the 200 trees is Rs 921200 “The MMRC has always maintained that the land allotted for the car depot has very few trees and not many trees are going to be hacked for the construction This document clearly shows that a lot more trees are going to be chopped down than what they have revealed” said Priya Mishra a member of the Aarey Conservation Group Further the document also indicates the area of the land to be around 264 hectares and not the officially stated 30 hectares land “Either the MMRC is lying about redesigning the car depot as they had already planned it on a 264 hectare land or they are lying about the number of trees that will be cut for the metro construction Either way the trees are going to be lost” added Mishra For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App

unlikely to make headlines even if it was not in the middle of election frenzy He was not a celebrity (and was happy not to be one) but he was clearly one of the few leaders worth celebrating in our public life If you met him even fleetingly Sunilji or Sunil bhai as he came to be called could convince you that idealism and politics could go together He inspired scores of young Indians to take to public life I was one of them He was a few years senior to me at Jawaharlal Nehru University where he came after having studied in Hindi-medium at Rampur a small town in Madhya Pradesh Tales of his brilliance and “A plus” grades still do the rounds at the Centre for Economic Studies and Planning (the name for the economics department at JNU) Satish Jain his teacher told me yesterday that as a first-semester student Sunil had spotted a serious logical flaw in a textbook written by a professor from Princeton He encouraged Sunil to write to the author who admitted his error Sunilji of course never mentioned this to anyone By the time I met him in 1981 Sunilji was something of a living legend in JNU He was the campus’s local Gandhi In a place where fierce political battles were fought within the socialist-communist-left fraternity communism and socialism were not just two ideologies but two ways of life Sunilji represented the non-Marxist socialist stream I found myself following his cult: it meant following Lohia and not Marx we wore kurta-pyajama and not the famous kurta-jeans we took pride in Hindi rather than English and we took to nimbu paani rather than drinking and smoking No one was surprised when Sunilji decided to leave his doctoral studies and a possible lucrative career in economics in favour of the hard life of a political activist He shifted to an Adivasi area in Kesala block in the Hoshangabad district of Madhya Pradesh No one thought he would survive more than a few months But his partner Smitadi and he lived among the Adivasis with them and like them for the last 30 years In Kesala Sunilji worked towards building the Kisan Adivasi Sangathan an organisation that developed Adivasi leadership through a series of struggles He was instrumental in setting up a fishworker’s cooperative of Adivasis displaced by the Tawa dam This was a model to be emulated as its performance beat both that of the government and the private contractors At JNU he had already met socialist thinkers and leaders like Kishen Pattanayak and Sachchidanand Sinha They were among the founders of the Samata Sangathan a non-party political organisation that decided not to contest elections for 10 years In 1995 this experiment gave way to the formation of a political party Samajwadi Jan Parishad that brought together many people’s movements I was his junior and truant colleague in all these efforts at building an alternative politics Sunilji was a pillar of strength for this party As the natural intellectual and political heir of Pattanayak he guided the party after the latter’s death in 2004 We parted ways in 2012 when some of us joined the Aam Aadmi Party at its inception Sunilji remained firm in his belief that only an ideologically undiluted socialist party could meet the challenge of our times His activism never drowned his intellect Sunilji was a prolific writer and his articles appeared in myriad Hindi newspapers and in the niche magazine of social movements Samayik Varta of which he was the editor His incisive analysis and insights were eagerly looked forward to and discussed in the social movements sector often informing and always influential in the parameters of debate Occasionally he wrote in English too Articles like “Socialism of the New Century” (Kafila August 29 2010) reflect the range and depth of his reflection on the politics of our times He remained an uncompromising critic of globalisation liberalisation and privatisation believing firmly in the possibility of building an alternative model of development Of late he had been a passionate advocate of the Common School System in education Sunilji was not the best known among the activists of his generation but he was arguably the tallest He belonged to the rare species in politics that combines personal integrity selflessness team-building ability and a powerful intellect He made it seem natural that these qualities should come together Getting to
