Govt should take action to stop forest fire by villagers

Upendra Kumar from village Jabara in Chatra district, Jharkhand, is telling us about the issue of setting fire in forests by villagers. People go to pick Mahua (fruit)
in forest and to remove dry leaves they set fire in those leaves. The trees eventually catch fire and it affects the hills and the forest. Govt is not taking any action to prevent such incidents. For more, Upendra can be reached on 8102094998
