Imphal: Manipuri Students’ Federation (MSF) on Tuesday declared that it will begin a campaign to look into digging, excavation of land and deforestation in the valley hills.
The campaign will be a part of an academic campaign of MSF under “Sanghanlasi Manipur”, the student body said in a press statement.
People are aware that excavation, digging of land in the hills and deforestation has led to soil erosion. However, many hills situated in the valley areas are excavated in the name of development which lead to soil erosion, landslides and sinkholes during rainy season, it added.
Deforestation, killing of birds and animal species which also contribute their part to the environment has led to ecological imbalance, MSF said.
