Drive against forest fires

Artistes stage a nukkad natak at Malsi Deer Park in Dehradun on Sunday.

Dehradun, March 26
As part of awareness drive against forest fires, the Uttarakhand Dehradun Forest Division organised street plays at Malsi Deer Park here yesterday. Dehradun Divisional Forest Officer Meenakshi Joshi at Malsi said such awareness programmes kept much importance towards sensitising society towards forest fires.
She said the Dehradun Forest Division had held several of such awarness programmes in village areas and forest resorts in the region. She said lots of visitors came to Malsi Deer Park during weekend, which was the main reason behind staging of the street plays at the park.
She appreciated Sambhav Natya Manch members for their assistance to the Dehradun Forest Department. The plays staged on the occasion informed the gathering about the role of Uttarakhand in forest conservation particularly the Chipko movement. The artistes informed the audience about the ill-effects of forest fires and appealed them to work together to check forest fire incidents.
