Impact: Order to cut trees owned by influential people causing road accidents

Mastram from Niwadi in Tikamgarh district in MP says in their town there were few trees next to a curve on the road which were owned by some influential people and they were not allowing them to cut though people were complaining from more than a year. Due to these trees the vision was obstructed and more than 35 people have died in accidents at that spot. I recorded a message on Swara and now officials have cut those trees. I thank CGnet and officials. Mastram@09981651831
