More than 5000 Students In Gurugram Formed A Human Chain To Protect Aravali Biodiversity Park

More than 5000 children from 31 schools across the National Capital Region gathered at the Aravali Biodiversity Park form a human chain to save the park on Children’s Day on November 14. The human chain, which stretched up to several kilometers, was a sign of protest against the National Highways Authority of India’s (NHAI) proposal to build a six-lane highway which is expected to cut through the park. The highway proposed is a part of the Greater Southern Peripheral Road (GSPR) project, which has been regarded as an alternative link between Delhi and Gurugram is expected to run for about 2 km along the width of the park, around 20-25 meters inside its boundaries. Activists and residents are opposing the construction as the construction work will destroy the park amidst severe air pollution.
