HoDs participate in ‘Green walk’

AALO, Jan 28: Heads of departments, led by West Siang Deputy Commissioner Swetika Sachan, participated in a plantation drive themed ‘Green walk’ organised here by the Aalo Forest division on Saturday.
The officers planted over 40 ornamental plants, including Gulmohar and Ashoka, along the streets, beginning at the government higher secondary school, and ending at the 2nd AAP headquarters.
“This initiative of the Forest division is a good step towards preserving the aesthetics of the town and will go a long way in improving the urban landscape,” Sachan said.
She stressed the need for such cooperation among different departments “to achieve better goals in future.”
Divisional Forest Officer Abhinav Kumar informed that the ‘Green walk’ would be an annual event featuring avenue plantation in the urban centres of the district.
“Officials will be deputed to take care of the saplings until they bloom into trees,” the DFO said. (DIPRO)
