Indore: Padma Shri Janak McGilligan Palta, a member of the Covid disaster management committee, launched a campaign of gifting saplings to people getting vaccinated in Dev Guradia to promote vaccination and further, increase the green cover in the division.
The campaign was launched in collaboration with Block Medical Officer Dr Prakash Kaushal at the Covid centre at Dev Guradiya panchayat Bhawan.
Under the campaign, a group of saplings have been kept outside the centre. Interested people can pick up and take the sapling home. “No one would be gifting the sapling per say, instead we are just making it available,” Janak said.
Pallavi Puranik, tehsildar of Khudail police station area said, “I will support this campaign in collaboration with forest department at all vaccination centres.”
