<h1>The politics of Mangar Bani</h1>
Mangar Bani, is the last surviving forest grove of Delhi NCR. Surrounded by the picturesque Aravalis, it serves as the last water recharge zone for the entire area comprising of Delhi, Faridabad and Gurgaon majorly. Locals who used to be miners earlier have lost their livelihood after mining was stopped in the area.
The apparent politics of the place is a heady mixture of locals who want high rises and sky scrapers to come up so that new means of livelihood can be found and locals who want to conserve and protect the forests and the Aravalis at any cost.
Providing an expert opinion are an environmentalist and a research fellow from TERI. Hear them to understand what the politics of the place pertains to.
