Neoranjit,
The Minister for Forest and Envionment, Mr. Jairam Ramesh, incidentally has been nominated a Rajya Sabha member from A.P. quota, A honest and un-corrupt person is one of his confirmed qualities and the other, a very well read person who also authored a few books.
Now, his credentials, commitment and role in saving the environment and forest or giving this department a new lease of life is yet to be seen .

The "celebs" i mentioned are not going to be interacting with the Chenchu's: that is going to be our job! The well known people in question will help rally support when required and be the public face of the movement.

I understand and agree. How about formulating an action plan which all of us can agree to and implement or make a beginning?

isnt that easier ? Since he is from AP, wouldnt he be a better person to talk to ? ( not that we can just knock his doors ). But then politics,and we never know if there is a wolf or sheep under its clothing.

The only action .....instead of just discussion is to go file a PIL in the court against rampant cattle grazing. There is going to be some action of the real kind. just wait and watch guys!

It is actually a good idea. Especially after the famous judgement of Hon. Supreme Court in Writ Petition (civil) 202 of 1995 (Godavarma Raja case), such issues are taken very seriously by the judiciary.

Hi Fazal bhai & DKG,

Please try to approach NDTV and other Channels as well, to request campaign like Save Tiger, Save Beaches, etc. "SAVE FOREST & ENVIRONMENT", highlighting Eco-friendly tips like an good example
of printing tips on paper bags. I am sure voice will be reach to more
broader audiences.

Regards & Good luck!

I think you are right. Sometimes you need to move the judiciary to wake the government up. Definitely worth exploring

Here is another destruction of Srisailam ecosystem.

The Union forest department has approved the digging of two tunnels in the Rajiv Gandhi tiger reserve to supply water from the Srisailam project to the Pula Subbaiah Veligonda project.

Full article: Nod to dig tunnels for Veligonda | Deccan Chronicle

About 39,048 acres of forest land was required for Veligonda Project, for which compensatory land of 7,632 acre was handed over to the forest department for afforestation.

This is insane. Ideally, the forest department should have got twice the area they had lost and not less than 1/4th.

Murli,
The forest is last on the list of proirities when it comes to all other departments, the irreviserable damage caused is unfathomable.
Hydro-elec, Roads and Buildings, Uranium mining, non CTH (critical tiger habitat) and so on, all encroach on the forest land and get endorsement from the government to legalise it. for full story by me read the first reult on this link:
