Before the Kerala assembly elections, Congress leader and MP from Wayanad, Rahul Gandhi, targeted the government led by P. Vijayan on Tuesday. Rahul Gandhi has criticized the Kerala government’s stand on the draft notification of the Center on Eco-sensitive Zone or Ecologically Sensitive Zone (ESZ). He said that due to this attitude of the state government on the buffer zone, Wayanad is threatening the livelihood of the people living around the Wildlife Century. There is a buffer zone around protected areas such as ESZ, Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary.
Rahul Gandhi wrote in his tweet, “The livelihood (livelihood) of the people around Wayanad Wildlife Century is jeopardized by the Kerala government’s stand on the buffer zone. This step of the government has left these toiling people in a cloud of uncertainty and suffering Is pushed towards the future. There is an urgent need to take protective measures. ”
The State Govt’s stand on buffer zone is putting at risk the livelihoods of the people around Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary.
Govt action is pushing these hardworking people to a bleak future of uncertainty & suffering.
Corrective action is immediately needed.
