Panaji: Chief Minister Pramod Sawant told the House that fruit bearing local forest species are planted to curb monkeys and peackocks from venturing in the human habits destroying their crops.
In a written reply tabled on the floor of the House to a question by Congress MLA Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco, Sawant said that  fruit bearing local forest species are being planted in forest areas and other lands available for plantations.
“Water holes are also maintained inside forest areas for the use of wild animals,” the chief minister said.
He replied in negative to a question  whether the Government has given any assurance that monkey and peacock menace would be controlled in the shortest time.
“No such assurance given. However, Forest Department is making all efforts to control or minimize monkeys and peacock menace,” Sawant said.
The farmers in the areas of Sanguem and Sattari taluka have been complaining about wild animals including monkeys and peacocks damaging the crops. The demand has been to declare them as vermin.
