Stressing on the importance of flora and fauna in human lives, L. Narayana Swamy, High Court judge, called for turning the arid premises of the High Court in Kalaburagi a great abode for birds by planting and nurturing fruit-bearing trees.
He was addressing a small programme organised on the premises of the Kalaburagi Bench of Karnataka High Court on Monday to flag off cleaning and planting drives taken up by the Zilla Panchayat under the Mahatma Gandhi Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA).
“There are peacocks and ducks in a good number in the area. Sometimes, we see rabbits and deer. We need to create conducive atmosphere for them to live and sustain. Planting trees, particularly fruit-bearing ones, in a large number will help,” he said.
Taking the eco-friendly premises of Dharwad Bench of the High Court as an example, Mr. Swamy called upon the stakeholders to develop the premises of the Kalaburagi Bench of the High Court in a similar manner. “We need to develop a Tree Park here,” he said.
S.N. Satyanarayana, another High Court judge from the Kalaburagi Bench, spoke.
Chief Executive Officer of Zilla Panchayat Hephsiba Rani Korlapati was present.
