Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, July 8: Governor Satya Pal Malik today said that his administration would not spare the corrupt in the state adding that both the small as well as big fish would be dealt with 'iron hands' by the present dispensation.
The Governor was talking to media persons while referring to the raids of Anti-Corruption Bureau in the state on the sidelines of the launching ceremony of the "Green J&K Drive" at a function organized by the Forest Department at Zabarwan Hills here today.
The Governor Malik said that all those involved in the corruption will face the law, stating that there will be no mercy to anyone. "There was no vendetta in such kind of raids and irrespective of the party affiliations and other things, all those involved in corruption will be dealt with strictly. The law is equal for everyone. I am still here and I am not going anywhere," he added.
The Governor further added that Kashmiris are by and large very good but they have been betrayed and were also not shown the right path. "I believe the people of Kashmir if shown a right path unitedly then J&K will become one of the best states across India," he told the reporters.
Reacting sharply against those who had the reins of forest department in their hands, Governor said they have brutally destroyed the forests for their personal gains.
"Jammu and Kashmir was one of the richest states across India with regard to flora and fauna. JK has all kinds of plants available used for manufacturing of medicines, bats and other things but the number of these plants are shrinking," he said.
He added that those who had the reins of forest department in their hands in Jammu and Kashmir so far have build properties outside Kashmir out of these forests. "They have brutally destroyed the forests here and managed to build their own properties outside JK," he added.
Governor further stated that these plants are the reason of survival of humans. He said that due to the plantation at Dachigam, the place has zero percent pollution, therefore, the administration has started a drive to plant at least 50,00000 saplings till June next year, adding that he will himself monitor the sapling he planted today and will take every precautions to preserve the plant.
Governor launched the "Green J&K Drive" at a function organized by the Forest Department at Zabarwan Hills here today. The Governor observed that Green Jammu and Kashmir drive has been launched under a major environment-friendly initiative of planting 50 lakh trees in the State by June 2020.
He said that the extensive plantation drive undertaken by the Forest Department and its allied wings by involving Panchayats, Civil Society and other stakeholders to plant trees alongside roads , railway lines, rivers, streams, canals , over degraded forest land, areas retrieved from encroachment, and institutional areas etc will go a long way to preserve and further enhance the rich forest wealth of the State.
Governor observed that in the initial stage nine lakh plants of various indigenous species will be planted over the identified earmarked areas during monsoon season in Jammu region to be followed by plantation in Kashmir during November-December and thereafter in March-April to achieve the target of 50 lakh trees by June, 2020.
He added that the Farm Forestry and Agro-forestry will be promoted by providing quality growing stock and other technical inputs to farmers and developing market linkages for proper sale of their produce.
