Correct option is
C

Successfully resisted deforestation.

  • Chipko movement was a forest conservation movement in India. It began in 1973. Alaknanda floods alarmed people of how deforestation has resulted in disturbance.
  • Thus people took up this movement and carried on a number of rallies to create awareness among people. They protested against commercial logging operations. And finally deforestation was prevented.
