GUWAHATI, Sept 25 - Welcoming the State government�s eviction drive in and around Kaziranga National Park, the Assam Environmental NGO Forum has said that the present eviction drive was carried out following directives of the court and all nature-loving people must cooperate with the government in making Kaziranga encroachment free.
�Kaziranga National Park and its additions will enjoy a new lease of life if encroachments are cleared. It�s the primary duty of a democratic government to take steps for conservation of flora and fauna and people must support the good work of the government. The Forum requests people not to create any political turmoil on the issue,� it said in a statement.
It also urged the government to take steps to evict encroachment in all other national parks, wildlife sanctuaries and reserve forests of the State. The Forum will offer cooperation to government on the issue, it said.
