MUMBAI: Shiv Sena today said it won't support destruction of Mumbai's rich forest ecosystem in the name of infrastructure development.

"The proposed metro yard, housing in buffer zone, rail freight line, all through a rich forest ecosystem will destroy Mumbai," Yuva Sena leader Aaditya Thackeray said.

"The Shiv Sena will not support this destruction of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Mumbai," he tweeted.

"The SNGP is one of its kind where Mumbai is probably the only city to have such a biodiversity rich forest within our city limits," he said.

"The party is all for sustainable development, but not ecological destruction. Not opposed to (Delhi-Mumbai) corridor, but must be realigned to save forest," he said.

"Once again, all for development. But has to be sustainable. Don't kill Mumbai, don't kill forests in Mumbai and Thane for such projects," he said.

"Destruction of Mumbai won't be allowed by the party.

Delhi-Mumbai corridor is from Dadri to Nhava Sheva. Can avoid forest destruction," he said.
