NA working on protection of Tarai Chure range

Rajbiraj, July 4

The Nepali Army has grown more active in protecting the Chure range of Tarai, including in Saptari.

The ‘Nepali Army No 1 Forest and Ecology Security Gan’ of Ranibash, Sindhuli under the President Chure Tarai Madhes Conservation Development Committee has become more active in protecting the Chure range.

At a programme held at Amaha, Pansera VDC in Saptari today, the NA planted trees and inspected tree saplings planted last year.

Lieutenant Colonel Kiran Bikram Thapa said that a team of Nepali Army personnel had been deployed to the 100 hectares of land in Rajaji and Singheswora Community Forest since last year.  Thapa informed that as many as 101,613 trees had been planted in collaboration with the District Forest Office.

A team of NA personnel had been deployed to the area for five years after former President Dr Ram Baran Yadav planted a tree to inaugurate the tree plantation   last year.

The area will be handed over to the community after the plantation project becomes successful.

Thapa said that a five-year tree plantation programme had been prepared for Sindhuli’s Dakaha, Mangalpur, Rato Danda, Dobhan, Siraha’s Patriga Chaur, Muksar, Mahottari’s Khoriya, and Saptari’s Hardiya and sent to the higher authority for approval.
