- Says humans are posing threat to other creatures including trees and nature
- Points out we are polluting air, water and nature and pushing the world into a great danger
Rajamahendravaram:.Addressing gathering at Lala Chervu centre here on Monday as part of Yuvatha-Haritha programme, he said that only human beings are posing threat to other creatures including trees and nature. "Moreover, we are polluting water, air and nature at the cost of our lives. There is a great danger to the universe because of our unnatural tasks," he said.
"Trees are giving oxygen to us for the survival of all human beings and creatures. But we are cutting them mercilessly, though there is no need. Because of this, the temperature levels are rising and it is posing problem to us. The government, non-governmental organisations and leaders should come forward to protect trees and be a role model to the students and youth," he added. "Still we remember Emperor Ashok Chakravathi who planted fruit and flower bearing trees and dug tanks," he added.
He further said that youth are backbone of the country and there is a need to change in their ideologies. If youth are strong, the community, state and country will become strong. The students and youth should take the responsibility of protecting the saplings planted by them.
