Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said today his government had set a target of plantation of at least 9.16 crore saplings this year under a special plantation programme.
On Independence Day itself, more than five crore saplings will be planted, he said.
"It is only through plantation that we can conserve the environment. To make the plantation programme a success, public partnership is necessary. Hence, it is important to make the people aware. In the special plantation programme, a target of plantation of 9.16 crore saplings has been fixed for this year," Adityanath said while chairing a review meeting.
On Independence Day, over five crore saplings will be planted, he added.
He said this target can be achieved by following the promise of 'Ek Vyakti-Ek Vriksha' (one person, one tree).
