To promote the cause of conserving water and planting trees on World Water Day, Pragati Biodiversity Knowledge Park and Pragati Foundation started their Herbal Urban Forestry Programme at Methodist Colony near Begumpet on Sunday. The public-private-partnership initiative is in association with United Federation of Residents Welfare Associations (U-FERWAS) and Telangana Builders Federation in line with CM’s ‘Telangana Ku Haritha Haram’ programme.

Speaking at the occasion Environment, Forest, Science and Technology Department special secretary Mohan Chandra Pargaien said, “Government alone cannot do environment protection and plantation. It can only be successful with active participation of all. The Herbal Urban Forestry Programme will go a long way in providing the much needed lung space to people in the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) region.”
Expressing his assimilation towards the programme Mohan said, “I welcome the initiative of Pragati, U-FERWAS and Telangana Builders Federation. There is a need to sensitise people to prepare for how we manage water in the future, with such initiatives like development of rain water harvesting pits in every house, in every colony, every area, that will help to enhance the water table.”
“Plant and water enjoy an integral bond. People’s will in taking up plantations is decreasing. The impact of the rapid destruction of the green cover and concretisation of the cities in the name of urban development is disastrous. We are sitting over a dormant nuclear bomb ready to explode anytime.
If steps are not taken on a war footing to avert this catastrophe, the moment is not far away when our cities, state, nation and our mother earth will soon be engulfed in calamities like Tsunami, people are groaning in pain as a result of the impact created by global warming, Ozone puncture and deforestation. Right plantation at the right place is the only answer,” said Pragati Group CMD Dr GBK Rao
