As part of the Haritha Haram programme, Finance Minister E. Rajender and Forest Minister J. Ramanna launched the plantation of 50,000 custard apple saplings in the forest areas of Khanapur and Narasampet mandals here on Friday. They also inaugurated boat service in the sprawling Pakhal lake in a bid to promote tourism.
Addressing the gathering, Mr. Rajender said that Haritha Haram was aimed at benefitting all sections of the society. Besides improving the greenery, it results in good rainfall.
Mr. Ramanna said the TRS government dispelled the notions that a separate State was not viable and people would not get power supply. “Within a year, we succeeded in providing enough power. Soon, farmers will also get power supply round the clock,” he said.
