Bhopal, June 6, 2016 (Abdul Ahad Farhan): Energy, Mineral Resources, New & Renewable Energy and Public Relations Minister Mr. Rajendra Shukla has urged people of Rewa to make it most green and environment-friendly city in the country. The Minister was addressing a plantation programme and seminar organised by Rewa Municipal Corporation, Jan-Abhiyan Parishad and other voluntary organisations at Rewa today. The Minister said that several years ago, action plan was made in Delhi and Bhopal and major plantation programme was undertaken through a campaign. Greenery in these cities is feast of eyes. This year, plantation should be made at every possible place in Rewa city. Plantation should be made again at places left out during previous years. In this way, over 50 thousand saplings will be planted. The Minister said that nurturing of saplings is more important than planting them. About 10 thousand citizens of Rewa should come forward to nurture 5 planted saplings each. Special attention would be paid to protection and growth of saplings planted this year on the occasion of World Environment Day next year. The Minister said that world’s first Mukundpur White Tiger Safari has been developed in Rewa-Satna. Rewa will also have world’s biggest solar power plant. Now, Rewa has to be made number one in the country in respect of greenery.
The Minister said that Rewa district has witnessed all-round development during previous years. Trees have been cut due to widening of roads and other development works. It is our resolve to plant many times more saplings than trees cut. The Minister administered pledge to people to protect eco park, undertake plantation and preserve environment. Energy Minister Shukla inspected under-construction auditorium on the premises of Government Girls College, Rewa. He expressed displeasure over slow pace of work and directed to accelerate it.
