Plant Neem saplings on both sides of the main roads

Bhopal. Environment Minister Antar Singh Arya has appealed to the members of the Cabinet and department heads to plant neem (margosa) saplings on the land lying vacant on both sides of the roads. He said that the National Highways, State Highways, Pradhan Mantri Gramin Sadak, Mukhya Mantri Gramin Sadak, Public Works Department and Nagar Nigam roads are apt for this work. Arya said that very less water and least maintenance is needed for neem trees. Tree plantation will reduce pollution caused by vehicles also. Arya said that Neem is a medicinal tree. It increases purity in the air. Greenery on both sides of the roads will reduce temperature also and bring relief to humans and other living beings.
