Raveena Tandon requested PM Narendra Modi to protect the safety of the wildlife who would be homeless with the coming of Delhi-Mumbai industrial corridor project.
The 1,483-km corridor is a state-sponsored industrial development project worth $100 billion to develop industrial zones, spread across six states.
To highlight on the ill effects of the project on the life of animals, Raveena has joined hands with animal rights organisation, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India.
The 41-year-old actress send Modi a letter which reads: “Since much of the forest area around Mumbai has already been destroyed, a small area of green is all that animals have… The destruction of natural homes is one of the biggest threats to Indian wildlife… Further destruction of what’s left of their homes will only make this awful situation worse.”
PETA said the project will regulate the movement of monkeys, boars, hyenas, deer and other animals.
“I hope you will agree that developmental and town planning must, therefore, include forest preservation and respect for wildlife. Mumbaikars look forward to your action to save our forests and wildlife,” said Raveena.
