Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan planted saplings of Kachnar and Karanj in the Smart City Garden today as part of his resolve to plant one sapling every day. Former MP Shri Alok Sanjar, members of Sukhvarsha Welfare Society, Vishal Srivastava, Niharika Saxena and Shimla Srivastava also planted saplings.
The society is working for environment-conservation and treatment of injured animals. The members of the organisation have planted trees in the civil dispensary premises located in Suraj Nagar. The organisation conducts plantation campaigns by placing seed balls in open places before the rains and motivating the people. It is the effort of the organisation that the planted saplings do not become a victim of neglect. The organisation arranges food for more than 100 destitute animals every day.
Arrangements for the treatment of injured animals are also being made by the society for the last 10 years.
Kachnar planted today is a beautiful flowering tree. Small or medium height trees of Kachnar are found all over India. Kachnar is full of medicinal properties. Karanj has important uses in Ayurveda.
