Kandaghat Block District administration has launched a three-day environmental awareness campaign in a bid to educate residents about steps that need to be taken to protect the environment.

Several people volunteered to participate in the drive and play their part in spreading consciousness about the preservation of the environment.

Prashant Deshta, Development Officer, Kandaghat Block said

We have started this special campaign for three days to plant 10,000 trees through Bharat Nirman volunteers. These volunteers will plant 10,000 fruit-bearing, medicinal and seasonal trees in three days. The prime objective is to inspire other people in the villages and motivate them to preserve the environment, especially since the environment is undergoing such a transformation

The volunteers were trained for local development under the ‘Lab to Land’ initiative programme of the Central Government. The participants have 24 village panchayats on their itinerary and plan to plant 24,000 medicinal, seasonal and fruit-bearing trees. The residents as well as the administrative bodies are contemplating to continue this drive. About 300 volunteers are participating in this campaign to spread the message of ‘Clean and Green environment’.
