Bovine attack thwarts Horticulture Dept's grand plan

Greater Noida: The Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) on Thursday planted around 150 trees near Fusion homes and cherry county, a residential township in Techzone IV. According to the residents, in a matter of a few hours, the plants were eaten by stray cattle.

On Thursday, Fusion Homes residents twitter account tweeted, "Thanks to Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority for wasting the money and killing the plants. These plants just added to your books but not in reality. All eaten by stray cattle. Plant less but save whatever we plant. This is purely careless and intentional".

"The plantation without tree guards or fencing is of no use. Most of  the plants were eaten by stray cattle on the same day they were  planted. This is a waste of resources and efforts", said Robin Mittal, a resident of Fusion Homes.
