As a part of celebration of 68th Vana Mahotsav, a week-long tree plantation programme commenced at Police Lines here on Thursday to create awareness among the police personnel and general public about the importance of improving green cover.
Smti Nuzhat Hassan, Director General of Police, Andaman & Nicobar Islands inaugurated the event by planting a tree at Police Lines premises. She urged all to plant more and more trees which would not only meet the local needs but would also create a healthy, beautiful eco-friendly environment.
The programme aims to plant nearly 500 different types of trees in and around Police Lines premises over a period of one week from July 13 to19. The saplings and seedlings were provided by the Forest Department of Andaman & Nicobar Islands.
