AAP leader Anoop Nautiyal, who released the video to media, also sent it to Uttarakhand Governor Krishna Kant Paul, Chief Minister Harish Rawat, Union Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu and other senior officials.
The video highlights the greenery, natural beauty and environmental significance of the 150-year-old tea estate. Terming the proposal as 'anti-environment' and 'anti-people', he said anyone who watches the video will reject it as it will deal a blow to the environment and displace a large number of people.
He said the state government's proposal "would not have most likely given you the correct and complete picture" of the site to be developed as smart city.
"Hence, I decided to make this video. I'm hopeful that after evaluating all the details and seeing this video you will surely disqualify the Uttarakhand government's smart city proposal for being completely anti-environment," he said.
