BBMP is butcher of Citys greenery

Justice M F Saldanha, former High Court judge and Chairman of Transparency International India (TII), has asked the BBMP officials to stop felling trees under the pretext of development and thereby destroying the city's green cover. In an open letter to the BBMP Commissioner S Subramanya, Justice Saldanha has said if the Palike did not stop doing so, TII members "would think of firmer methods to ensure that the city's greenery is not further destroyed.'
