The Samajwadi Party in Meerut have stood for the cause of environment. The district unit of the party would be planting ten thousand saplings this monsoon season.
Rajpal Singh, party’s district president said that SP president Akhilesh Yadav has great affection for environment as he is a graduate in this stream and during his reign a world record of planting five crore saplings in a day was made. Hence the district unit has also decided to contribute in its own way for environmental conservation.
Singh had met the chief conservator of forest (West zone) Lalit Verma and handed over a letter to him requesting for 10 thousand saplings from the forest department that the party plans to plant in different locations of the district.
Confirming the request received, Verma said that he has asked the party leaders to provide the detail of land and safety of planted saplings before providing them the same.
