On March 20, the controversial Hubballi-Ankola railway line project was cleared at the Karnataka State Wildlife Board (KSWB) meeting in Bengaluru amid protests from members.
The proposed 164.44 km Hubballi-Ankola railway line passes through the Western Ghats, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The project will see felling of 2.2 lakh trees, a move that has been opposed even by the members of the KSWB.
