Kudremukh National Park project -- Evacuees refuse to fall in line

Our Bureau

MANGALORE, April 2

SEVERAL families that are be `relocated' as a part of the proposed Kudremukh National Park project have decided not to move out of the area the Government is ostensibly trying to protect. They have also decided to refuse any `compensation' in this regard.

At a meeting held at Guruvayanakere, organised by the Dakshina Kannada Parisarasaktha Okkoota and Nagarika Seva Trust, a committee was formed to protect the interests of people dwelling within the ambit of the area marked out for the creation of a `national park' from which the `original inhabitants' would have to be evicted.

A two-day State-level convention would also be held in June to discuss the issue in the context of the need to chalk out a more people-friendly forest policy.
