He said that the recipients have been motivated to create tree groves on the tubewell so that the forest cover of Punjab may get revived and fight against pollution, warming and climatic deterioration. He informed that this proposal of plantation on tubewell was discussed during DISHA committee meeting and this has stated from Mudhal. All the 500 plants shall be planted within 5days and a 100% of survival shall be ensured by the DFO. More plants shall be provided in phases ensuring 100% survival of the plants.

Briefing the media Aujla informed that Cabinet Minister Sh. Navjot Singh Sidhu wanted to join for this program but due to him being out of station he wasn’t able to be present but he has assured complete financial and administrative support. Aujla said that SAGY aims at instilling certain values in the villages and their people so that they get transformed into models for others. He said that Mudhal shall be the model village.
