Stop construction in 5 acre Protected forest of Mayapuri green belt and demarcate it
This petition had 943 supporters
As we all know how humans are bluntly destroying the forests and greenery ,moving to their own destruction ultimately , it has become important to protect forests and greens left. As you may know that there is a green belt along Mayapuri road running from Jassa singh park (opp. Metal forging) to the CEPT plant (opp. Govt. press). This area is expected to be the 5 acre forest area declared protected under 1980 forests notification. DDA has started a project in the area making concrete structures , clearing land of foliage and trees. Already part of the land has been misused by removing all sesame trees which once stand in the area adjacent to CEPT plant.. Also DDA is trying to make it a park and club it with Dayanand park ,after which it will be a play ground for cricket, football etc. and other ground activities attracting much crowd and chaos .
It is interesting to tell that this forest patch along with densely grown trees of Dayanand park makes good bird habitat and many uncommon and rare birds are recorded here with total 45 species. One such bird , Thick billed flower pecker,was rarely recorded in Delhi after a gap of 70 yrs from here only. All this was there due to the forest patch and the unaltered state of Dayanand park where there are large trees, which should be maintained as it is.
We need this as forest so as to serve as a green lung in the ever increasing pollution of Delhi, specifically Mayapuri and specially when its an industrial area. Besides it is green source near the DDA MIG Flats adjacent to it.. We don't want muddy grounds with shouting crowd but green areas to move in harmony with trees, foliage, birds to make us feel relaxed and healing.
