Question

The chipko andolan( hug of the trees movement) was the result of a grass-root level effort to end, alienation of people from their forests. The movement originated from an incident in a remote village called Reni in Garhwal. There was a dispute between local people and a logging contractor who had been allowed by the government to fell trees in the forest. On a particular day, the contractor's workers appeared in the forest to cut the trees while the men folks were absent. But the women of the village reached the forest quickly and clasped the tree trunks thus preventing the workers from felling the trees. Thus thwarted, the contractor had to withdraw.What would have happened, if chipko andolan did not arise?
