Even before the mindless marking of trees in the (Delhi) University campus was reported, repeated efforts by the TreesForDelhi action group had ensured that all affected trees should be marked with different colours and that the colour code should be as follows:
- For trees that will be cut
- For trees that will be transplanted
- For trees that will be left unaffected
However, it seems the Government has been following the policy of “If you can’t cut them, confuse them”.
The above image was taken (on Sunday, April 29th) from near the Akashvani Bus Stand, right in front of where the PTI News display board has been installed to distract the vehicle drivers – with the Parliament House Annexure in the vicinity. Several trees have been marked here – in the same fashion.
