Maharashtra Environment Minister Mr Aaditya Thackeray has asked the Union government not to go ahead with the proposed auction of coal mine blocks near the Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve. Mr Thackeray said “I have written to the Union Minister for Environment, Forest and Climate Change Mr Prakash Javadekar ji on the issue of the proposed auction of a mine site near Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve, opposing the auction. We cannot have such destruction of our wildlife corridors. The auction has been scrapped after evaluation twice before, once in 1999 and then around 2011. Then why once again must we waste time and energy over a futile process when we know that it will destroy the wildlife corridor of Tadoba and Andhari?”

The Sena leader recalled that former Union minister and Congress leader Jairam Ramesh, almost a decade ago, had stopped this destruction.
