Pls give cooking gas to villagers so they wont have to cut forest for fuel wood

Geman Kanojia from Sonbhadra district of Uttar Pradesh is telling us that in his area people are cutting forest to cook their food. When they talk to the same people they tell him while cutting the trees they feel like cutting their children but they do not have a choice. He requests govt to provide cooking gas so they will not have to cut the forest against their wish which is destroying the environment. For more Kanojia Ji can be reached at 09628141516
