Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao on Wednesday called upon forest officials and staff to draw inspiration from the sacrifices made by the department personnel who lost their lives protecting forests.

Paying tributes, on the occasion of the Forest Martyrs Day, to those who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty, the Chief Minister urged foresters to work with dedication to protect forest wealth in the State with the slogan “Jungle Bachao-Jungle Badhao.”

He said: “Everyone of those who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect forests should be remembered. They lost their lives at the hands of smugglers and encroachers.” Forest officials and staff were demonstrating extraordinary courage and dedication without any regard to their safety, he added.

The Chief Minister also said forests were invaluable and handing these over to the generations to come would be the greatest gift one could give them. “In the past five years, crores of saplings have been planted across the State to improve the tree cover,” he added.
