A strategy of preserving 25 lakh trees from the axe in Ken-Betwa river link and Buxwaha diamond project in Chhatarpur district.
In a campaign organised to save Buxwaha forests and precious cave paintings, Jadav Payeng, who is usually known as the forest man of India, will be the speaker in an environmental parliament. In the second week of September in Bhopal, the parliament will be held. For the diamond project in Buxwaha, almost 2.5 lakh trees have been put forward to be cut down.
Sharad Singh Kumar of the Save the Environment Campaign addressed the press conference on Friday and said that the date will be announced shortly for the environmental parliament. In Buxwaha town of Chattarpur district, a Widespread protest has seemed to hold a place.
Over 2.5 lakh trees would get demolished. They have filed a case against the project in the high court and the NGT. Afforestation programmes will be accomplished, said the government, activists declined to accept them. “The parliament will submit the matters related to the Ken-Betwa river link project where over 29 lakh trees are immersed,” said Kumar. Saplings were planted in Jadav Payeng on 1360 acres of land for decades and transformed into a reserve forest in the Jorhat district of Assam. The speaker on this occasion will be the recipient of Padma Shri 2015. “The issues on Bada Talab and the Upper Lake of Bhopal will be highlighted in the event,” said the environmental activists and advocate Pushpraj Sharma. The government, in an NGT hearing in Buxwaha on Friday, did not appear. Another hearing will be held in the month of October.
Destroying a vast flourished forests area for acquiring glittering stones is not needed because diamonds can be manufactured artificially using the technology, but the government is not considering affirmed by environmental lovers.
Forestation is tendered at a quick step. “Humans can not produce the naturally enlarged forests like Buxwaha and have their environmental importance,” said Anand Patel.
A campaign is being held by Paryavaran Bachao Samiti, a group of volunteers from MP and other states to save 2.25 lakh trees of Buxwaha and over 23 lakh trees under threat because of the Ken-Betwa river link.
A communique from the organisation said that across the country, environmental activists and volunteers are gathering in Bhopal to spread awareness on environmental affairs.
