“Many historical rulers including Samrat Ashok had exhibited their concern towards environment by planting saplings across their kingdom. We have a living example of Salumara Thimmakka who has largely contributed to the same cause. Having them as models, let each of us plant and look after atleast 10 saplings a year and thereby bring awareness for our next generation,” he said.

He also informed that NABARD is involved in environmental protection by working in association with 30 watershed development boards.

So with the objective to bring back the greenery, Hasiru Habba has been organised which has intended to plant saplings in farm lands and road sides. “We have to celebrate Hasiru Habba every year just like the way we celebrate other festivals,” he insisted. 

Taluk Panchayat member N H Mohan and Anna Naik requested the gathering to develop the villages by utilising the facilities provided by Bhoomi Samsthe.
