Ayodhya Hills on Fire: CJP fellow brings us images from ground zero Our grassroots fellows are bringing out stories that are often ignored by mainstream media

23, Mar 2021 | Mohammed Ripon Sheikh

CJP grassroots Fellow Ripon Sheikh brings us images and videos from Purulia and areas around Ayodhya Hills where a huge bushfire, reportedly started by suspected miscreants, set hundreds of trees and vegetation ablaze. Youth and social workers, including members of DYFI came out to bring the situation under control in this water-scarce district. Children and local residents, including baul singer Naren Hansda, organised cultural events and rallies to create awareness.
Please Support our fellows so that more such stories can be shared with the world.
