The Co-ordinating Body, Khurai on Tuesday urged the authority concerned to turn Thangjing Ching into a reserve forest area.

In a release, the Co-ordinating Body, Khurai urged not to put hindrances in the activities taken up to protect the forest. No one should raise objections in conducting religious activities at the site and hurt the religious sentiments of others, it mentioned.

The body also lamented that the forest areas surrounding such religious sites have been cut down to accommodate space for new villages. It further alleged that poppy plantation is also done in these areas. To protect these sites, they should be turned into heritage sites under the Historical Monument Act by the state government, it mentioned.   

Encroachments happening at areas which have been considered as Valley Based Reserve Forest should be evicted immediately, it added.
