Guwahati:  The environmental NGO Bahankshyam Unnayan Shakti is going to file a Public Interest Litigation(PIL) at National Green Tribunal(NGT)  against the lackadaisical attitude of the forest department of Dibru- Saikhowa National park.

As many as 15 wild buffaloes drowned to death at the Dibru- Saikhowa National Park’s Maguri-Motapung beel.

The environmental NGO believes that due to the presence of huge number of water hyacinth in the beel, the wild buffaloes died. The Beel is home to several migratory birds.

The NGO has came down heavily on the forest department of Dibru- Saikhowa National park for failing to properly dispose the carcasses of Asiatic wild buffalo which had died at Dibru- Saikhowa National Park’s  Maguri – Motapung Beel in Tinsukia recently.

“For the disposal of the carcasses of wild buffaloes the forest department has done nothing. Till date no higher forest official and official from district administration has went to the place from where the carcasses was found. We have been very much distisfied with the role of forest department and going to file a PIL at NGT soon,” said Niranta Gohain, general secretary, Bahankshyam Unnayan Shakti.

Gohain added that in monsoon season everyday one lakh water hyacinth are produced in the lake. Dibru Saikhowa National park has a heavy population of water hyacinth.
