Nizamabad MP Kalvakuntla Kavitha on Saturday planted 3 saplings in front of her residence in Hyderabad as part of a ‘green challenge’.
Taking to Twitter to share a picture of one of the saplings, Kavitha said that she was extending the same challenge to Telangana Deputy Chief Minister Mahmood Ali, Andhra Jyothi MD Vemuri Radha Krishna, badminton star Saina Nehwal and director Rajamouli.
On July 27, celebrating the occasion of former President Dr Abdul Kalam’s birthday Igniting Minds and Walk for Water, two charitable organisations, will forward the Telangana government’s Haritha Haram program by challenging people to plant three saplings each, and as part of the challenge, MP Kavitha has planted three saplings in front of her house in Hyderabad.
“The primary aim of this program is to encourage planting saplings in a competitive and fun way. MP Kavitha has said that planting trees is the easiest way anybody can contribute to nature and tackle droughts, global warming and other environmental challenges.
