Plant trees, take support in return, says NGO

Dehradun, January 23
Citizens for Green Doon (CGD), an NGO, devoted to the cause of environment, has pledged to support those candidates in the elections who would abide by the five conditions laid down by it.
Dr Nitin Pandey, its president, said the candidate who would swear into planting 1,000 trees, set up one park and ensure its proper maintenance, one toilet, 1,000 solar street lights and remove encroachment in his/her segment each year, the members of CGD would lend their unequivocal support to that candidate and help them in campaigning also.
Pandey rued that none of the political parties made environment an issue in their manifestoes. He said the city was stricken with several environment-related problems, which required to be resolved. He said his organisation had made this endeavour to catch the attention of the candidates.
