Telangana Will Soon Achieve 33 Percent Green Coverage Area: Indrakaran Reddy

Yadadri-Bhongir: Forest Minister A Indrakaran Reddy on Friday said the State government has taken up plantation programs on a large scale for the revival of forest area and to increase green coverage area to 33 percent.

Inaugurating the District Forest office, which was constructed on two acres with Rs 3.5 crore, he said Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao has worked with the mission of increasing the green coverage area to 33 percent in the State and had launched the Telangana Ku Haritha Haram program as part of it. Plantation programs were taken up in areas where the forest cover was depleted.

Reminding that the forest area was very less in the erstwhile Nalgonda district, he instructed officials to lay special focus to increase the forest area in Nalgonda, Suryapet, and Yadadri-Bhongir districts. The green coverage area had so far increased from 20 percent to 24 percent due to the initiatives of the State government. He exuded confidence that the green coverage area would be increased to 33 percent in the coming years. Ample green coverage areas would ensure ecological balance and also lead to good rainfall.

A tractor and water tanker were provided to each village for the purpose of sanitation and watering the planted saplings. In all, 15,000 nurseries have developed in the State for the supply of saplings for plantation programs.

Under Telangana Ku Haritha Haram, 249 crore saplings were planted, 80 percent of which had survived. He appreciated the role of officials and elected representatives in making a success the programs taken up by the government to improve sanitation and facilities in the villages.

Energy Minister G Jagadish Reddy, Government Whip Gongidi Sunitha, Zilla Parishad Chairman Alimineti Sandeep Reddy, Rajya Sabha member Badugula Lingaiah Yadav, principal secretary of forest Shanthi Kumari, and district Collector Pamela Sathpathy were also present.
