The Department of Forest celebrated its 90th foundation day at its head office at Sanjenthong, Imphal West on Monday.
Attending the function as chief guest, Forest Minister Awangbow Newmai said that the Forest department is one of the most important departments in saving nature and humans, however, people usually neglected its importance.
He said that due to various interferences in the society and ignorance of forest laws and acts, the staff of the department often face numerous challenges in performing their duties. However, they should deal with such cases boldly.
As a part of the programme, retired senior forest officers were honoured.
The foundation day celebration was also attended by principal chief conservator of forest and head of forest forces, AK Joshi as president.
