Go Green Drive to be undertaken by AR

IMPHAL, May 23: The Assam Rifles is taking up a fortnight long initiative called ‘Go Green Drive’ in the state from 24 May to 09 June 2013 in its efforts to promoting greenery.  A press release from the PRO, IGAR (S) informed that Gen UK Gurung, AVSM, YSM, IG AR(South) has chalked out a detailed road-map to ensure significant contribution towards the noble cause and exhorted all Assam Rifle Sectors and Battalions to put their best foot forward. Cooperation and assistance from the Forest Department has also been solicited besides motivating villagers, particularly the youth, for their active participation in making the entire process a great success, it said. Besides tree plantation, a number of events have been planned during the drive which include lectures on the benefits of afforestation for students, drawing & painting competitions based on Go Green theme and excursion trips for school children to nearby parks and gardens.  

In working towards the mutual goal of sustainability through environment conservation, the press release said that it's essential that we all should make a commitment to ourselves towards conservation of fragile and diverse ecologies and start working towards environment conservation as if it's now or never. The endeavour undertaken by Assam Rifles is aimed at starting a legacy of sustainable environmental development for ourselves and for our future generations and in turn hoping that the Green Canopy of trees that still exists is not degraded further, it added.
