How does the issue came into being?

A

Last Sunday, children were seen raising their voices in support of the Save Aarey protests addressed by Aaditya Thackeray. Aditya then himself shared the images of the protest on his official Twitter handle in which children could be seen as the protesters holding placards.

In the post he wrote,”Aarey is a unique forest within our city. Uddhav Thackeray ji declared 808 acres of Aarey as Forest and the car shed must move out. Our human greed and lack of compassion cannot be allowed to destroy biodiversity in our city.”
