Union minister Nitin Gadkari said today that around 10 crore trees would be planted under the 'Ganga Tree Plantation' programme on the banks of the river from Haridwar to Kolkata.
"The tree plantation along the banks of river Ganga will create job opportunities and will also benefit the environment. (Maharashtra) Forest minister Sudhir Mungantiwar will lead the project," the Minister for River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation said at a programme here.
Union minister Hansraj Ahir was also present on the occasion.
