Guwahati: The Assam Jatiya Parishad (AJP) has strongly urged Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Group to stop their palm oil farming project in Sadia, Assam. The party is worried that this farming could harm the local environment and the variety of plants and animals in the area.
The party talked about the problems that come with palm oil farming. This type of farming can damage the soil because it takes too much water from the ground. It can also make the environment warmer. Many countries have banned palm oil farming because of these issues. Even the Supreme Court of India has stopped palm oil farming in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands to protect the different kinds of plants and animals there.
Lurinjyoti Gogoi, the party’s leader, said in a statement that giving land to Patanjali Group for large-scale palm oil farming is not good for the public because it can harm Assam’s fragile environment.
Mr. Gogoi also talked about the higher temperatures and less rain in Assam over the last ten years, which might be because of global warming. Some parts of Assam are facing very dry weather. With this in mind, growing more palm trees could make these environmental problems worse and hurt Assam’s nature and variety of plants and animals.
Because of these worries, Mr. Gogoi has asked the government to think again about letting palm oil farming happen. He wants them to understand that this could hurt Assam’s environment and the many different plants and animals that call it home.
