Attempt to sabotage gadgil report: RSS
The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has alleged that various religious organisations and political parties are trying to sabotage the Gadgil panel report recommendations.
At the three-day state conference held in Kochi last week, RSS leaders had decided to carry out mass campaigns for the protection of environment.
In a press release, the RSS leadership stated that catastrophe that hit Uttarakhand should be considered as warning for the state regarding nature conservation. “Till now, no government has come up with environment-based development programmes in the state,” they said.
The RSS was also critical regarding the Aranmula Airport project. According to the organisation, the Aranmula project will have severe impact on the flora and fauna of the area.
The implementation of the project will disturb the environmental balance in the area, which will consequently trigger calamities like that happened in Uttarkhand, they said.
