Hyderabad: Chief Minister Mr K Chandrashekhar Rao launched the fourth phase of the plantation programme, ‘Telangana Ku Haritha Haram’, on Wednesday from Gajwel.
In the fourth phase, the government aims to plant some 100 crore saplings across the State. In the last year, about 82 crore saplings were planted. There are 12,751 gram panchayats and the Government is also planning to develop nurseries at each gram panchayat.
“If we protect nature, it protects us. If nature exhibits its anger, then the existence of human beings becomes difficult. That is the reason why our elders educated us on worshipping nature, so that the rain god bestows his blessing on us,” the Chief Minister said on the occasion.
Later, the Chief Minister extensively toured Gajwel constituency and participated in many plantation programs. The CM also participated in Medchal district, and planted saplings. He also went to Turkapalli, Mulugu, and Prajnapur in Shameerpet Mandal and participated in plantation.
