On Wednesday(September 18)Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) leader Akhil Chitre slammed Amitabh Bachchan for joining those who are lobbying the construction of metro in Mumbai that would lead to cutting of thousands of trees in Aarey Colony.

Speaking to ANI, Chitre said, “In 2010, Amitabh Bachchan was opposing the metro just because his privacy was getting hampered. But, within a few years, after the change of the government, his views changed. I do not know what deal he has done with the current government. His views may also have changed because of the change of route of the metro. It is very sad when people across Mumbai are protesting against the cutting of trees in Aarey forest, he is tweeting in favour of metro construction there.”
