SHRAVASTI: To adress man-animal conflict along the Indo-Nepal border, the area will be equipped with solar fencing and thorny wires at the cost of Rs 8 crores. Till now, the efforts to stop such conflicts is a failure.
The difference between the population and the forest could not be widened as the line between them has not been drawn yet. Around 500 villages of Shravasti and Balrampur are situated near Sohelwa and the inhabitants in these villages are frequently visiting the forest. The proposal for wiring was sent to the government four years ago but now the chances of approval looks bright.
