Deforesations is the rule in Sanguem Forests as Forest department enters into active collaboration through its acts of ommisions and acts of commision and letting mining companies free hand towards getting forest areas for mining purpose. Our tour towards Sanguem forests brought shocking facts to the forefront. We found number of roads being demarcated by cutting down thick forests in Sanguem. This picture was taken of one those roads near Tudva village in Sanguem Taluka. Have a look: (external link)

Forest department must investigate those responsible to make roads like this inside the forest and initiate criminal proceedings against those found guilty. Other it would be interpeted that forest department is in bed with mining companies on honeymoon night. Faster it acts better it is.
