Chandel, July 4:

As celebrated every year throughout the country during the first week of July, the District Forest Division, Chandel celebrated the VAN MAHOTSAV 2020,  at Lamphoupasna, Chandel district.

Speaking on the occasion Deputy Commissioner, Chandel, Krishna Kumar said that the forest department has done a good job, but the voluntary organisations, village level organisations and other civil society organisations should come up with some ways to protect the sapling planted today. He added that after the survey of the same next year, if successful, can become a role model and can be implemented in other villages of the district. He further said that district administration is looking for a valuable partnership with the villagers as such programs cannot be successful without their active participation and contributions.

While addressing the gathering DFO Chandel, N. Ganesh, IFS, thanked the villagers and the civil society organisations for their active participations. He further said that while efforts for afforestation are going on, deforestation is going on other places, so instead of concentrating the efforts on afforestation it will be more effective if the forest protection is decentralise through the villagers and the civil societies and the district level officers. He further assured the villagers that he will try to help them out on the Agro Forestry models.

The main event of today’s program was the tree plantations by the dignitaries, DLOs, representatives of civil organisation, villagers etc.

 Today’s function was attended by SP Chandel , N. Modhunimai, ZEO, SDO, Chandel, 18AR, Medical department, District AIDS Control Officer  and may villagers and different civil society organisations.
