Hyderabad: Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday lauded Telangana State government for taking up plantation as a movement under ‘Haritha Haram’.
He suggested that all the State governments should take the initiative in creating awareness among children about environmental protection and tree plantation from the school level. He called for a people’s movement to protect the environment and urged people to voluntarily participate in various conservation activities.
In particular, Naidu called upon youth to proactively lead environmental movements from the front and motivate others to adopt sustainable practices. They should drive the point among people that “If we take care of nature, nature in turn will take care of mankind”, he said.
Naidu was speaking at the book release of ‘Nursery Rajyaniki Raraju’, a book on the life story of late Palla Venkanna, who is credited with transforming the village of Kadiyam in Andhra Pradesh into a popular hub of plant nurseries.
