Jamshedpur, June 4: Former Kolhan Commissioner Vijay Kumar Singh will mark World Environment Day on Monday by launching a campaign titled “Hariyali Bhare Raaste” (Greening the Way). The initiative aims to plant fruit trees in administrative premises, educational institutions, industrial areas, and unused land in remote rural areas across various police station areas of Kolhan. The campaign seeks to address malnutrition in rural areas through increased green cover.
The campaign will commence at the MGM police station premises in Dimna, Jamshedpur, where 200 saplings will be planted. Additionally, a total of 500 trees will be planted in other police station areas of the city. Senior Superintendent of Police Prabhar Kumar has been invited as a guest for the launch event. Vijay Singh extended his best wishes on the occasion of World Environment Day and highlighted the significance of the day.
Singh emphasized that World Environment Day was established following the decision made by environmentalists during the 1972 Stockholm Conference. Since then, the United Nations has designated June 5 as World Environment Day to raise awareness about environmental issues. The primary objective is to protect the environment from pollution and promote widespread awareness to encourage active participation in environmental conservation. In line with this mission, the “Hariyali Bhare Raaste” campaign will kick off on June 5, 2023, and continue for one year until June 5, 2024. The aim is to plant and preserve one lakh trees throughout the year, making a significant contribution to environmental protection. Vijay Singh stressed the importance of public participation and encouraged everyone to join the campaign
