Dwarka residents seem to be on a mission to make the sub city greener. With the number of tree-planting drives taking place, where residents not only plant saplings but also adopt them, it is more than likely that the sub city would soon become an urban paradise and a much sought-after destination for citizens.
The latest in a string of sectors that witnessed a tree-planting drive was Sector 23. Women of the sub-city adopted plants in the tree-planting drive organised in park number eight by Association of Neighbourhood Ladies Get-together (ANHLGT).
Over a hundred people from all across Dwarka were present at the event and 40 saplings of different types were planted. According to organisers, those who planted saplings pledged to look after those plants and were also registered for the same.
Cicily Kodiyan, president of ANHLGT and a resident of Sheetal Vihar Apartments (Sector 23), said, “This drive is a small effort to add some greenery to our sub city. This time we planted with the concept of adoption of plants. We planted saplings where the plants from last year’s drive had died. We will incorporate this concept in our other such programmes too.”
Ramesh Matiala (area councillor), Omveer Singh, (section officer, horticulture, South Delhi Municipal Corporation) and Madhuri Varshney (president of Dwarka Forum) were present during the drive, and also planted saplings.
