Haritha Haram Essay
The government’s dream of transforming the State into Bangaru Telangana will be fulfilled with Haritha Haram programme, said Minister for Panchayat Raj K.T. Rama Rao.
Participating in the Haritha Haram programme in Gopalraopalli village in the district on Saturday, Mr. Rama Rao said the government took up the ambitious programme to increase green cover in the State and thereby protect the environment by planting 230 crore saplings in the coming years.
Stressing the importance of increasing green cover for the benefit of the future generation, he said that Haritha Haram was not a government programme but a people’s movement for the protection of environment. He said they would distribute saplings free of cost to all and appealed to people to plant the saplings and nurture them with care.
TSCOB Chairman K. Ravinder Rao, Sircilla municipal chairperson Samalla Paavani and others were also present.
Nalgonda Staff Reporter adds: To create awareness about protecting the saplings planted during the Haritha Haram programme, the Nalgonda police have taken up a unique initiative.
Superintendent of Police Vikram Jeet Duggal called upon the people to adopt a plant and upload a selfie with that on Nalgonda police Facebook page. Mr. Duggal said they would organise a programme to felicitate some selected persons for best picture at the police headquarters.
The SP hoped that the selfie contest would encourage youngsters to adopt plants. The Nalgonda police have actively been participating in Haritha Haram programme. Several rallies involving schoolchildren have been taken out to popularise the programme. To make it a success, the SP has set certain targets for all the police stations.
