A tree plantation programme was held in Shanti Vidya Bhavan, Digodh, Hingna road, to mark birth anniversary of Rajiv Gandhi, former Prime Minister, here recently.
Subhash Warhade, Senior Journalist, inaugurated plantation programme in presence of Dr Ramesh Patil and Ganesh Dhanorkar. Addressing the gathering, Warhade said that looking at the illicit tree felling elsewhere there was a need for undertaking tree plantation programme on large-scale. He wanted that the students should also come forward for planting and nursing the saplings.
In his speech, Dilip Pankule, President of Maa Vaishnavi Education Society, said that around 200 plants have already grown in the premises of the school while teachers, non-teaching staff and students were taking care to nurse them.
Dr Sushama Pankule expressed her views on importance of environment. Sopanrao Sirsat, Vasantrao Ghatate, Principal Dr Prakash Rathod, Head Mistress Mamata Dhore, HM Anita Francis, Ishwar Dahikar, Girish Tekade, Amit Nawade, Kalpana Wadafale, Aarti Deshmukh and others were present.
