Deputy Inspector General of Police A. Amalraj has asked the policemen of Ramanathapuram and Sivaganga districts to plant saplings in police stations and police quarters.
Inaugurating a green campaign aimed at increasing the green cover on police premises here on Friday, he said the need had been felt worldwide for increasing the green cover and promoting afforestation to fight climate change.
Although much was talked about the imminent need of each and every citizen to contribute to the nature and human cause, individual or society contribution was not up to the mark. It was high time saplings were planted by each and every individual.
It had been proposed to convert the premises of police stations in two districts as green premises by planting saplings. Each policeman in their respective stations should a plant sapling each.
They could be named after the policemen who had planted them. They should pay equal importance for the maintenance of respective trees. The police stations could be called as environment friendly premises within no time if proper attention was given to the saplings planted in police stations.
