Ooty: Prevent illegal activities in forests

Udhagamandalam: Forest officials should take more care in protecting forests, said the CPI(M), the Nilgiris chapter.

In a statement issued here the district secretary of the party R. Badri alleged that illegal activities were taking place in forest areas with the connivance of forest officials.

Nothing tangible had been done even after bringing it to the notice of the government, he said. Permission given to remove dangerous roadside trees was being misused.

He alleged that under the guise of removing trees which had been declared as dangerous, valuable trees were being cut. Appropriate action should be taken against people who were in illegal possession of wildlife trophies.
