NAGAON, July 2 - In a joint venture, the Nagaon Forest Division and the Public Works Department conducted a massive tree plantation drive on both sides of the old NH 36 and NH 37 from Dimow to Uriagaon bypass Chariali and similarly from Nowgong College police point to Borghat bypass Chariali, on the occasion of the 70th Van Mahotsav Week.

The local MLA, Rupak Sarma in the presence of Deputy Commissioner, Nagaon, Jadav Saikia, the Superintendent of Police, Shankarbrata Rainedhi, DFO, Rajen Chaudhury, officials of the PWD, Forest department and the Nagaon Municipality Board as well as other dignitaries of the district and local organisations, inaugurated the green drive at a function held at Nowgong College police point.

Addressing the function, MLA Sarma said that the drive would help to keep the eco-friendly balance and would also reduce the risk of air pollution of the surroundings. Appealing for public cooperation in the green drive, Sarma appealed to the inhabitants of the town to plant trees on the roadsides of each area so that the town may hold on to the green atmosphere. The threat to environment which has been projected after the cutting off or uprooting of some roadside trees during the ongoing constructions and the extension of NH 36 and NH 37 can be overcome through such green drives, Sarma added.

It may be mentioned that due to the ongoing construction as well as widening of the old NH 36 and 37 throughout Nagaon town, the authorities had cut off or uprooted various roadside trees across the town, which apparently posed a severe threat to the natural green atmosphere of Nagaon.

Meanwhile, the DFO of Nagaon, Rajen Chaudhary said that the department concerned had launched such drives every year but those drives proved to very small in comparison to the rapid global deforestation as well as global warming. Such green drives will be effective only when the public awareness is high, Chaudhury said adding that the department would plant trees and it was for the general public to nurse them for growth.
