Modifications Made To The Highway Map For The 400-Year-Old Tree

The 400-year-old banyan tree of Bhose village in Sangli district of Maharashtra is very much in the news on social media nowadays. The service road of the highway under construction passes through it. Therefore, this tree was being cut and a road was being built. But environmentalist activists strongly opposed it.

Seeing the growing opposition, when the state’s environment minister Aditya Thackeray was apprised about the tree, he immediately took action and spoke to Union Minister Nitin Gadkari and demanded to save the tree. After talking to Aditya Thackeray, Nitin Gadkari has ordered to complete this project by changing the highway map itself to save this tree.

Gadkari requested to save the old tree

Ratnagiri-Nagpur highway number 166 is under construction near Bhose village in Sangli district. Environmentalist activists of Sangli protested against cutting down trees. This protest spread so much in social media and news media that the state environment minister Aditya Thackeray interfered in it. He spoke to Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari and requested to save this old tree.
