State Forest and Animal Horticulture Minister Dara Singh Chauhan said that Gorakhpur is going to be a much better option in terms of tourism and eco-tourism. Shaheed Ashfaq Ulla Khaw Zoological Park will be established in the new year and after Ramgarh lake has been declared as the first notified wetland of the state, it will be established not only at the national as well as international level.
Keeping this in mind, the International Bird Festival will be organized in Gorakhpur in February. In this, international level tourists will come here for Gorakhpur lake and bird watching. Forest Department officials have been instructed to materialize this event.
On Saturday, the Forest Minister was addressing the honor ceremony organized by Rotary Club Gorakhpur at Annexe Bhavan. He said that history was created by planting 25 crore saplings in one day this year under the leadership of state Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for environmental protection. Next year, by planting 30 crore saplings in one day, we will work to break our own record. But its success will not be achieved without public cooperation. The plantation is most important for environmental protection.
Rajya Sabha MP Jayaprakash Nishad, MP Ravi Kishan Shukla, State Women Commission Vice-Chairman Anju Chaudhary, Merchant Welfare Board Vice-President Pushpadant Jain, Chief Conservator of Forests Bhimsen were present at the event. Club President Arvind Vikram Chaudhary welcomed the guests. The program was conducted by Shivendra Vikram Singh, Kirti Chopra, Dilbag Singh Kohli, and Charu Chaudhary. Rotary Secretary Manish Jaiswal proposed a vote of thanks. Chairman Plantation Mandhata Singh and Praveen Aggarwal introduced the guests
Area of forest area increased in the state
Constant work is being done in this direction under the leadership of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. The forest area in the state was less than 6 percent, now it has increased to 9 percent. He said that instead of cutting the 15 to 20 year old tree, now the emphasis is on tree transplantation. According to the instructions of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, 10 trees are being planted instead of one tree. He said that Ramgarh lake is a unique gift of nature given to Gorakhpur. You can build luxurious buildings but it is unthinkable and impossible to create such a rhythm. Soon Ramgarh lake will also become a notified wetland.
Emphasis on eco-tourism
Emphasizing eco-tourism, Dara Singh Chauhan said that Purvanchal will get the gift of a zoological park in the new year. Keep the zoological park so beautiful that if any tourist comes to Kushinagar then he will definitely visit the zoo of Gorakhpur. The Forest Minister invited the citizens of Gorakhpur to visit Dudhwa, Katarniaghat, Chuka Tiger Reserve for tiger sighting. He also emphasized the branding of Eco-Tourism.
