Jammu Tawi, December 15
Army today organised the ‘Afforestation Drive’ at village Bhajnowa, Tehsil Nowshera under operation Sadhbhavana. The ‘Afforestation Drive’ was organised at village Bhajnowa in coordination with the school children and locals. Government and Army have been making a synergized effort towards the overall development of the environment. Development projects in the area, coupled with deforestation and forest fire have had adverse impact on flora and fauna of the region.
The drive to ‘Go Green’ by way of planting saplings is a novel initiative. A lecture was also conducted to educate on ‘Conservation of Environment’ along with a ‘Run for Fun’ to spread the message of ‘Go Green’. The locals of the area enthusiastically participated in the event.
