Speaking to Pune Pulse, Javed Shaikh, daily commuter & resident of R Euphoria, Kondhwa Budruk said, “The tree is here for a long time. It is completely lifeless, so a huge branch of the tree is bent in such a way that it could potentially fall anytime, risking people’s lives.”

Latif Kalekar,  a daily commuter & resident of R Euphoria, Kondhwa Budruk said, “The big tree on the Pune-Saswad road divider is lifeless. It can fall at any time. It feels very dangerous to travel on that road. Hence, the PMC must cut this tree immediately.”
