N. Biren Singh stressed the need of the concerned officials to make the public aware of certain Acts implemented to conserve the forest and agricultural lands. Manipur, being a small landlocked State with certain uncertainties like landslides and floods, it is imperative to save our paddy land and increase our produce to become self reliant.
Continuing that there are instances of overlapping jurisdiction of land between Revenue and Forest Department and issues of Dag Chithas on Reserved Forest Areas, he expressed concern that such activities would hinder the development of the State creating tension among people.
He urged the officials to rectify any wrong deeds done earlier so that our precious forest and agricultural land could be saved timely.
