Karimnagar: Everyone should participate in Haritha Haram programme, which will start on June 25, Commissioner of Police VB Kamalasan Reddy said.
Speaking on the occasion here on Monday, Police Commissioner VB Kamalasan Reddy said the police department has decided to plant 50,000 saplings in the next phase of HH. Out of which, 25,000 saplings will be planted in Police Training Centre (PTC) area to develop the place into urban forest through Miyawaki system. The police department is focusing mainly to give good atmosphere for the future generations by participating actively in Haritha Haram. From 2017 onwards, the police department had planted about 45,000 saplings till date at various locations and protected them, he informed.
He said that police personnel, who are showing interest to plant saplings, must also show the same spirit in protecting them. With the inspiration given by Japan scientist Miyawaki and power point presentation by former president late APJ Abdul Kalam, the police department is taking up initiation for developing some areas into urban forests keeping in view of future generations, he said.
For protecting every sapling planted in the PTC, drip irrigation method is used and the police department also decided to provide strong sticks to give support for the saplings so that they can grow straight, he added.
PTC in-charge Principal and Additional DCP G Chandra Mohan said they never expected that the Police Commissioner will support to develop a small forest in PTC by planting 25,000 saplings through Miyawaki system. He assured of protecting all the saplings with 100 per cent responsibility.
