Mumbai: The BJP has condemned the felling of 25-30 trees in Worli, Mumbai, and Mayor Kishori Pednaker has said it will take action against those responsible for the law. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has registered an FIR against the unidentified persons in connection with the incident. In Mahalakshmi, some trees have been cut down. 
 
The Municipal Corporation registered an FIR against the unidentified. It is said that the trees may have been cut down for hoarding. Pednecker said action would be taken against the defendants. The municipality filed an FIR alleging that an unidentified man had cut down small bushes. It is assumed that the trees may have been cut down to disturb the hoarding. A letter has been sent to the Railways in this regard and action will be taken after the cameras are checked. She said action would be taken against those who cut without the permission of the municipal corporation.
 
Opposition leader in the Maharashtra Legislative Council Praveen Darekar said on Sunday that 25-30 trees had been cut down in Worli. BJP leader Darekar told reporters that the felling of trees a day after World Environment Day was a shameful move. About 25-30 trees have been planted in Worli. We condemn this act. We came here to visit the situation and take a note. Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Mumbai unit president Mangal Lodha also accompanied Darekar to Worli on Sunday. According to Lodha, the trees were cut down by a group of illegal hoarders. The incident also took place in Borivali, Andheri, and Chowpatty areas. Responding to this, the mayor said his complaint was filed before Environment Day. 
 
Opponents can do anything, defendants can do anything. If you think there is a hoarding team, tell them we will suspend them. The hoardings are from the railways. Opponents of the logging allegation will be out soon. Pednekar said his complaint would be reported to the Railway Administration in Delhi.
