MP CM launches greening drive

06 Jun 2020 | 2:30 AM

Bhopal, June 5 (UNI) Emphasising that this planet is home not only to humans but also for fauna and feathered creatures, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan expressed concern Friday over mankind’s blind exploitation of nature in the unbridled race for so-called progress.
“Forests have been decimated, toxic emissions from factories polluted the environment, chemical fertilisers and pesticides contaminated water plus food. This simply cannot be described as development; it is in fact destruction! Striking a fine balance between growth and the habitat is imperative. As is universally known but often conveniently disregarded, trees purify the environs, provide us with food, raise groundwater level and enhance storage,” the veteran leader was officially quoted as saying while symbolically inaugurating – via videoconferencing – a major plantation initiative organised by the Harda-based Subhash Manch on the occasion of World Environment Day.
