50 Lakh trees - An Innovative approach

I came across an interesting article which I felt like sharing with everyone.

The ruling JD(U) has made planting a sapling and nurturing it a prerequisite for anyone hoping to join the party. The person has not only got to plant the sapling but also provide a photographic proof that the sapling has been planted to the members of the Harit Bihar Abhiyan committee. The committee will not only provide a unique number to all the saplings planted but also visit the tree at some point or the other to verify if its being well taken care of. It is indeed a novell way of driving a green initiative in Bihar.

JD(U) hopes to enroll 50 lakh new members in the next 2 years and if the green plan of it works, Bihar will have an additional 50 lakh trees planted over the next 2 years. Howzzat!!!

More details can be read in the Indian Express news article "The Green Thumbs".
