BARPETA, July 29 - The Government of Assam is committed to protect World Heritage Site Manas National Park- cum-Tiger Project, asserted Pramila Rani Brahma, Minister of Forest and Environment.
Talking to mediapersons on her arrival at Narayanguri on the vicinity of the park where the Beki has created uncertainty by unabated erosion during the last few days, Brahma said that the present dispensation at Dispur will not compromise with the protection of the World Heritage Site park.
Brahma, accompanied by the Speaker of the State Assembly Ranjit Kumar Das visited the flood and erosion-affected areas in Barpeta and Baksa district yesterday.
They took stock of the ongoing situation at the park after breach of the embankment at Panchmail. Later, they visited Barapeta-Mainamata areas under Sarbhog Assembly Constituency.
The Forest Minister made it clear that the Government will adopt special schemes for protection of the flora and fauna of the park and will not tolerate any move by any quarter which was detrimental to the development of the world-famous park.
