Google pictures show Army destroying Northern forests, accuses CM

The central forest areas of Northern forest areas affected and destroyed by Army staying in the forests. Google pictures clearly confirm the bare areas of very large extent existing now in the central parts of the Northern forests, accused the NPC CM, C.V.Wigneswaran

He was talking in the last Coordinating Committee meeting held yesterday.

Elaborating further, he said that, our lands are being robbed. The serenity of our bird sanctuary are being destroyed with inappropriate buildings being built in them. As the army had taken over large extent forest lands, our forest lands are being affected. Google pictures show that large scale de-foresting carried out in the central forests of the North. Our resources are being taken away to the south. It is not appropriate that we live like “ Nero playing Fiddle while Rome burned”, without knowing what is happening around us.
