“During Telangana CM KCR’s birthday, we targeted about one crore saplings “Koti Vruksharchana’ plantation in February. We succeeded in planting about 1.7 crore on a single day. About 1,500 saplings from Kadem nursery were brought for the programme in February. Now three crore saplings are available in our state,” Green India Challenge founder and MP Joginapally Santosh Kumar said.
Of three crore saplings, while one crore will be planted in the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority jurisdiction, two crore in districts.
