#goanewsEdiTweeT: LET GOVT DECLARE SCORCHED FORESTS AS NO-DEVELOPMENT ZONES
Credit : TOI
In such cases, Govt-level Inquiries are time-consuming exercises, where culprits are finally given a clean chit.
The real issue is that the burnt-down forests should be allowed to be restored with similar biodiversity. If there is no vested interests involved, then @goacm@DrPramodPSawant & @visrane should come clean by declaring all the scorched belts as no-development zones for the next 50 years. No land conversion to settlement or eco-tourism projects.
Preserve them as ‘Devraiees’ (देवराई) like the ones in Sattari taluka, the sacred groves of the ecosystem.
1. Declare scorched forests as No-Development Zones for the next 50 years;
2. Preserve these belts as ‘Devraiee’, allowing them to restore the pre-fire biodiversity.
