Karimnagar: District Collector Sarfaraz Ahmed in a statement released here on Friday said that all the saplings that were planted under third phase of Haritha Haram will be protected and new saplings will be planted in the place of old ones that were died or withered away.

Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao had launched the third phase of Haritha Haram on July 12 at Manair reservoir by planting a sapling.

As part of the plantation drive, about 15,000 saplings were planted in the surroundings of Manair reservoir and another one lakh saplings at different locations under city municipal limits in Karimnagar. Due to certain reasons, some of the saplings planted at Manair reservoir have died. They were replaced by new ones and tree guards were also arranged.

Steps were taken for watering the saplings regularly under the supervision of City Municipal Commissioner Shashank, Forest Officer Srinivas and OSD Anjaneyulu, informed the Collector.

The entire area was divided into a few blocks and as many as 40 workers were employed to complete the saplings’ plantation near the Manair reservoir within a week and to remove the weeds, the Collector informed.

Every Friday will be observed as Green Day for protecting the planted saplings to make Karimnagar as Green City, City Municipal Commissioner Shashank stated.

As part of the Green Day, sanitary workers have inspected all the divisions present in Karimnagar city and checked the planted saplings and took measures for arranging tree guards and watered the saplings.
