Demolition of Ashram in Tungareshwar poses challenge to forest department
| Thursday | 16th May, 2019
A senior forest official from Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) said that they were minutely planning the entire strategy to carry out the demolition operation.
The CEC, in 2009, even recommended demolitions of all encroachments but the forest department failed in carrying out demolitions despite issuing several eviction notices.
"The State government will have to provide forest department with full back up so that this time they can return only after carrying out complete demolitions.
However, in the meantime, more violations by the ashram continued including regular widening and repairs of roads as well as construction activities, which are prohibited in the protected forest.
It's obvious a huge force would be required to prevent law and order situation but it's high time its done," he said.
