Last week, the Union Environment Ministry had written to the Jharkhand government asking it to consider on priority the representations received from the Jain community. In 2019, the central government declared Shri Sammed Shikharji an environmentally sensitive zone. Sammed Shikharji, located on the Parasnath Hills in the Giridih district of Jharkhand, is the biggest pilgrimage of the Jain community.
