Press Trust of India 

Lt Governor (L-G) Baijal today directed municipal corporations to develop vertical gardens at here.

The L-G also directed the Development Authority (DDA) to take up a massive plantation exercise, a move intended towards achieving a "Green Delhi".

In a meeting with officials concerned, Baijal also stressed that vacant "gram sabha lands" be developed as parks.

"The L-G directed MCDs to build vertical gardens at flyovers, to be watered with non-potable water only.

"He also directed DDA to take up a massive plantation exercise," the L-G office said in a statement.

It also stated that Open Defecation Free (ODF) must remain the "top focus" and it should be completed by June 30, 2018.
