To celebrate the state’s golden jubilee in a befitting manner, the Haryana government has decided to plant one sapling each for its 2.5 crore population. The state will plant 60 lakh saplings of eucalyptus, 13.50 lakh medicinal plants and 20 lakh fruit-bearing trees, Forests Minister Rao Narbir Singh, who was presiding over a review meeting of the department here today, said.
Haryana came into existence in November 1966. In view of increasing global warming and climate change, the minister directed officers to encourage people to plant neem, peepal and banyan saplings during the 68th Van Mahotsava celebrations in July this year.
