Environment CS Warns Against Encroachment Of Forests

The government will have no mercy for people engaged in wanton destruction and massive encroachment of forests, Environment, Climate Change, and Forestry Cabinet Secretary (CS), Soipan Tuya, has said. While terming them economic saboteurs, the CS said once arrested, those involved will be considered terrorists because their actions of destroying the country’s future deserve such treatment. She said there is information that some people have set up hotels and others are doing farming activities inside forests, saying it will no longer be tolerated. While terming forest destruction a national disaster, the CS said the government cannot be on a tree planting drive while other people are destroying forests.
