Destruction of Mangroves :
I would like to bring to notice the destruction of mangrove being done on the Thane Ghodbunder road, just after passing the bridge on the Chena River on the Left hand side while moving towards Thane. A plot of land with mangroves has been dumped with construction debris and now a temporary gated structure has come up. This plot and the adjoining plots have mangroves on them.
So kindly look into the same and do the needful to prevent the destruction of mangroves.Attaching the map of the same.
To address complaints regarding Mangrove destruction, Govt. of Maharashtra have appointed Regional Commissioner, Konkan as coordinating officer. Local police stations can also register complaints against destruction of Mangroves.
