Make your birthday meaningful by planting saplings : CM Shri Chouhan
Plantation must to save earth from dangers of erratic rainfall, melting of glaciers and rising sea level
CM Shri Chouhan takes part in programme organized on one year completion of daily plantation
Voluntary organizations plant 425 saplings under CM Shri Chouhan’s leadership
Tree plantation campaign to continue
Bhopal, 24 February. Chief Minister Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that tree plantation is necessary to reduce the temperature of the atmosphere. Due to climate change and global warming, the temperature of the earth will increase by 2 degrees centigrade because of which glaciers will melt, sea level will rise and rainfall will be irregular. One of the effective means of avoiding these hazards is tree plantation. We have to make tree plantation an integral part of our life. We must plant saplings in the memory of family members and on every happy occasion. Activities such as making giving bouquets, garlanding and putting up hoardings on birthdays are futile. By planting a tree, birthdays will be more meaningful. With this, we will be offering something to the earth, remembering the day we have come into the world. It will be an expression of love for our earth. Along with this, activities like social service, helping the underprivileged on birthdays etc. should also be encouraged. These activities will give a meaningful shape to our birthday.

Important role of social institutions in the progress of the state

I started planting saplings every day from Amarkantak on February 19, 2021 on Narmada Jayanti. I have been planting saplings every day from wherever I am. Now I consider these plants like my family. Planting trees creates a feeling of closeness and affection. I feel incomplete on the day I do not plant any sapling. Many organizations joined in the year-long tree plantation campaign. It became clear that many people are doing exemplary work at the field level in Bhopal. Amazing work is being done in the field of environment, education, health, cleanliness, child welfare, women empowerment and self-reliance.

We must make planting saplings a habit. It will not only give us satisfaction but also to inspire others.
PM Shri Modi targets to release Net-Zero carbon Emissions by 2070
Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has said that India will fulfill its environmental resolutons. The Prime Minister has set a target of Net-Zero Carbon Emission by the year 2070. Plantation of trees is the main effort among the many efforts being made by him for this. But this goal will not be fulfilled by the efforts of one person. We all must come forward. Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that the torrent of Narmada river, the lifeline of the state appears from the trees. The river flows only when the trees release water drop by drop. There are more than 3 trillion trees on the Earth. The Amazon rain forest, which comprises half of the rest of the Earth’s rainforest, contains 390 billion trees. These trees are doing the job of giving oxygen as well as absorbing carbon emissions thus saving the earth in the process.

Activities to keep Earth safe will continue
Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that the state government will continue the work of plantation with the help of people. Two trees will be planted every day.
