  1. In fact the wetland needs protection and the places like near airport/devanhalli should be made SEZs .The construction work is still on, they should atleast get a stay order.

  2. Great, this is exactly the kind of social spirited public action we need. Litigation is the only way to make a larger impact.

  3. like we dont have enough SEZs and offices. I would rather that the government invest money in providing affordable wifi networks across the city to discourage the number of physical office spaces and need to commute.
