To compensate for the environmental loss, the authority decided to plant thrice as many saplings somewhere else. But for a sapling to turn into a full-grown tree is a lengthier process. Also, they have to survive many weather conditions during the process. Not all saplings turn into trees.

Bollywood celebs too reacted on the Aarey issue:

Sad to see that where are we heading? Do we need a parking lot more than we need oxygen?
