Protest against move to ‘shift’ proposed heritage park in Manipur
The Sangai Protection Forum along with local clubs and people of Keibul area took out a rally, demanding the construction of Heritage Park at Keibul Lamjao in Bishnupur district.
What’s the matter?
- The State government had announced that a heritage park would come up near the Keibul Lamjao National Park in Bishnupur district.
- Villagers are protesting against plans to shift the site elsewhere near Kimi Keibul Lamjao National Park (KLNP) in Manipur, 53 km from Imphal in Bishnupur district.
- They argue that the people of the proposed site are not associated with the steps for the conservation of the endangered brow-antlered deer (Sangai).
