Mumbai The chairman of the newly-reconstituted Dahanu Taluka Environment Protection Authority has declared green clearances for key infrastructure projects passing through Dahanu taluka in Palghar district as 'null and void'. The projects include the National Highways Authority of India's Mumbai-Vadodara Expressway Phase-II, the MMRDA's Surya irrigation scheme, and the Dahanu Regional Plan. The Supreme Court established the DTEPA in 1996 to protect India's first notified eco-sensitive zone (ESZ) in Dahanu.
Janata Dal (United)'s Upendra Kushwaha, a former union minister, said the people who attacked his convoy had their faces covered. “I will tell you about the motive and the people involved in the incident later,” he said in a tweet.
