Agartala: As the reports of man-animal conflict are only rising in Tripura’s Teliamura wildlife subdivision, Tripura forest department has introduced a infrared sensor based technology to keep the wild jumbos away from the human settlement, District Forest Officer Khowai Naveen Kumar Chanchal said.

In an exclusive interaction with the North East Colors, Chanchal said, “the incidents of man-animal conflict in Teliamura subdivision has become a chronic issue. As it can’t be stopped in real time, we have started taking both long-term and short term efforts to minimise the incidents. recently , we have introduced the Anider sensor technology in the area so that people can understand the movement of elephants”. 

The state of art technology works as an alarm bell as soon as it senses the elephants within the 50 metres peripheries of the sensor.

“These Anider sensors are being installed in selected areas that are marked as most vulnerable in terms of human-elephant conflict. As soon as the elephant crosses the danger level territory, high pitch sound waves are triggered from the sensors that drive the elephant herds inside the forest”, said the official. 

Apart from that, he said, satellite radio collaring is also on the verge of completion. “Most probably, we are installing the radio collars in two elephants next month. This will help the forest department understand the movement of the elephant herds”, he added. 

According to sources in the forest department, the main reason behind the rampant incidents of man-animal conflict is the fragmentation of the animal habitats. The space for the elephant shrunk and in search of fodder and water they breach the Jungle peripheries and appear in the human settlement. 

He said for now elephant watchers are engaged in lieu of a very little pay who are helping the forest guards as volunteers in anti-depredation camps.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
