TIRUCHI: The Federation of Welfare Organisations of Tiruchi has appealed to the State Transport Minister K.N. Nehru to initiate steps for improving the green cover in the city by planting saplings along the roadsides.
In a representation to the Minister, the federation coordinator N. Ramakrishnan welcomed the various development programmes planned in the city under the Tamil Nadu Urban Road Infrastructure Project.
Expressing confidence that the city would sport a new look once the proposals were executed, Mr.Ramakrishnan however stressed the need for increasing the city’s green cover too.
Felling of trees
Over the past couple of decades, a large number of trees have been felled in the city.
Efforts should be taken to plant about 5,000 saplings in the city to compensate for the loss of green cover, he said.
