Rawat shared that in his RIT he has suggested the government to include the local youth in the task force who will be trained for disaster management, to fight the forest fires and to increase afforestation, for which a stipulated amount of Rs 5,000 will be given to them. This will be a step towards controlling migration and for saving crores of rupees of the government. Vijendra Rawat told that after the hearing of the plea by Lok Sabha Petition Committee, the report will be further sent to the Central Home Ministry which will present the blueprint within three months. He further said that if the government will deploy around 20,000 youth, then the yearly expense will cost around Rs one crore twenty thousand only.
