For example, In India, industrializatiin and urbanization are taking place at great pace, but at the cost of peoples welfare.
There is eviction of people from their land in the name of development, recent Guna incident of MP is an example where Dalit couple ate pesticides for their eviction from land.
Also, an example could be encroachments in areas for construction, etc harming wildlife. Eg. Recent floids in Assam harming rhinos of Kaziranga National Park.
Also, construction in eco sensitive zones is worse kind of development, at the cost of life of animals.
