Jharkhand Is Motivating Other States As It Stepped Down From Its Idea Of Building An Airport To Protect Elephant Corridor

No doubt, development of any kind is important for every state, but not more than preserving our natural wild-life. Well, Jharkhand is the best example and is gives lessons to other states. Jharkhand has stepped down its decision to not to build the Dhalbhumgarh airport to save forests and animals. What a great decision the state has made. Their decision was welcomed and applauded by everyone.

We all know that the elephant’s habit has been regularly threatened by developmental projects like this during the past.

To build this airport, it would need nearly 100 hectares of land from forests in Jharkhand that serve as a corridor for elephants migrating between Jharkhand and the neighboring state of West Bengal.

The proposal for building the airport has put on hold for now.

Have a look at what they have to say about this.

I think this is the best decision ever taken by the ministry towards environmental resolution and we really hope it isn’t the last good decision concerning the environment and wildlife in India. Long way to go Jharkhand, I hope other states also follow such kind of things. What do you think?
