Call for immediate steps to preserve the pristine environs

Civil Liberties leader G. Haragopal, Telangana Political JAC (TJAC) chairman Prof. Kodandaram and educationist and MLC Chukka Ramaiah on Sunday demanded immediate steps to preserve the pristine environs of KVBR Botanical Garden and halt the activities meant for commercial exploitation of the 274 acre forest land.

They joined the protests organised by the Botanical Garden Walkers’ Association on Sunday morning and criticised the way in which the government departments sought to destroy the natural environs and pave the way for commercial activities in the guise of eco-tourism.

Prof. Kodandaram demanded a public hearing by the Pollution Control Board on the issue and said if the government failed to initiate steps to preserve the sprawling garden and its natural flora and fauna, the JAC would consider protest public meetings.
