The white line in the satellite image is the contour indicating 250 feet above sea level. If that’s the case, the image shows that the hill-clearing lies above the 250-feet threshold allowed in state guidelines.
In 2012, the state government said that 31 development projects had been approved by the previous BN state government on hill land above 250 feet and none by the PR state government.
The state government/MBPP must let us know what this hill clearing is all about, who is responsible for this degradation, and who approved it, if at all.
Also what sort of hill-slope is this? What are the gradients?
Stop the degradation of our hills.
