A plan will be prepared to develop the forest of Sayonsar village of Pehowa as a Wildlife and Bird Sanctuary . A team of officials was here tom inspect the Syonsar forest. On this occasion, Chairman of Diversification Vinit Garg, District Forest Officer Ravindra Dhankhar, SE Arvind Koshik of the Board, Executive Engineer Hasanraj and other officials closely inspected the forests of village Sayonsar of Pehowa.

During this, the possibilities of developing the forests of Syonsar as a wildlife and bird sanctuary have been discussed in detail. These officers have considered every aspect of the plan and have discussed with the Vice Chairman of Saraswati Heritage Board, Dhumman Singh Kirmich, on the roadmap to take the plan forward.

Singh Kirmach said that along with Kurukshetra, it is good fortune of Haryana that a beautiful forest is developed on 11 thousand acres of land in village Sayonsar of Pehowa. Apart from the tourist destination, this forest can be developed as a wildlife and bird sanctuary. The plan to keep extinct birds in this forest has been discussed. Along with this, it has been discussed to keep other animals including bulls, elephants, lions, langurs and monkeys in this forest. It is believed that this forest must have developed due to being on the banks of river Saraswati. Therefore, the mind has been made to develop this ancient heritage further.

He said that every aspect would be considered to develop this site so that this site could be developed as the most beautiful wildlife and bird sanctuary of the country. He said that the Forest Department has been asked to plant fruit-bearing and shady trees in this forest.

Along with this, ponds will be built around this forest so that water can be taken from these ponds to the forest. With this, the birds and animals living in the forest can also get water to drink. The draft of this scheme will be prepared and placed before Chief Minister Manohar Lal and Forest Minister Kanwarpal.

Only after getting permission from there, they will work on the next course of action, he said, adding that talks will also be held with the central government for this scheme.
