MP High Court News.
The Madhya Pradesh High Court has summoned the matter of permission for felling of trees for diamond mining in Buxwaha. For this, the Central and State Governments, Aditya Birla Group’s Essel Mining Company and others have been given three weeks’ time.
The matter was heard before the double bench of Chief Justice Mohammad Rafiq and Justice Vijay Kumar Shukla. During this, advocate Sudip Kumar Saini, resident of PIL, Jabalpur himself presented his side.
He argued that preparations have been made to slaughter more than 2.5 lakh green trees to get diamonds worth about 50 thousand crores buried in the middle of Buxwaha forest in Chhatarpur area of the state.
Buxwaha forest cutting.
A movement has started regarding this. Forest rights activists are opposing the cutting of trees in view of the interest of wild animals and general public living in this area. The campaign has also been launched through internet media.
This made it clear during the debate that the importance of oxygen has come to the fore during the Corona period. Trees are the source of oxygen.
Therefore, they should be considered more valuable than diamonds. It is more valuable than material wealth – it is necessary to save trees of medicinal importance including teak, peepal, tendu, Jamun, Behera, arjun, and other natural wealth.
Alam is that even the reports are being changed in the craze of getting diamonds. The wild animals which were found in this forest in the earlier survey are now being shown as missing.
