Jamshedpur, May 20 : Ranchi is all set to host an eight-day environment conclave from May 29 which will highlight different facets of environment and minimisation of adverse impact on it.
Organised by Yugantar Bharti, an outfit dedicated to environment conservation, the conclave to be held at Audrey House will see participation of various companies, which will put up stalls at the venue of the event.
Addressing a press meet at the Circuit House in Jamshedpur this evening, chairperson of Damodar Bachao Andolan, a initiative of Yugantar Bharti and state food and civil supplies minister Saryu Roy, said that several government department and corporate houses including Tata Steel will take part in the conclave to make people aware about the disasters of pollution created by different sources.
