Red Sanders smuggling had been a lingering issue for the state, particularly in districts like Chittoor. Despite the ongoing commendable efforts of the cops to nab the red sander smugglers, a special Red Sanders Anti Smuggling Task Force (RSASTF) has been adopted to tackle and address many issues surrounding the red sanders smuggling.
This task force has been continously focussing on investigating, coordinating and commanding operations. As part of the ongoing drive, the force has now launched a specially designed vehicle called Vana Chaitanya Radham. This vehicle has been onboarded with a mission to educate people all about red sanders, their importance, outcomes of deforestation, need to conserve forests and much more.
Vana Chaitanya Radham will have interesting cartoons, paintings, information about public address systems and special LED screens that will display important message oriented short films around the subject. There will also be special troops who will be roped in conduct various cultural and awareness programs. The vehicle will travel from morning to evening, interacting with the locals and educating them in detail.
