Pune: Stating that due to the low quality of air at few places, fresh air stations had to be set up in countries like China and Japan, District Collector Saurabh Rao appealed that more efforts need to be undertaken in order to increase the green cover in India.

Rao was speaking at the launch of ‘Jai Ganesh Harit Wari’ campaign, which is being undertaken on the sidelines of annual Wari festival, a 21-day pilgrimage to Pandharpur from Alandi and Dehu.  He added that under this initiative, the villagers and pilgrims participating in this pilgrimage will conduct plantation of saplings along the route of Wari. Rao added that the land acquisition for Jejuri halt en route to Pandharpur is in the final stage.

The programme was launched in Valhe by Shreemant Dagdusheth Halwai Ganpati Trust and Suvaryug Tarun Mandal. Under this programme, the plantation drive will be implemented from Alandi to Pandharpur.

President of Alandi Devasthan Ajit Kulkarni, Rajabhau Chopdar of Chopdar Foundation, Shivaji Maharaj More of Dehu Sansthan, Ashok Godse, Mahesh Suryavanshi and Hemant Rasane of Dagadusheth Halwai Trust were present on this occasion.
