Plantation plan is prepared to make the city green from the rain. Thousands of trees are planted to show the government, but they are not cared for. As a result, most of the trees dry up and many rupees become useless. The same has been the case for the Meerut Development Authority (MDA) for the past two years. Great claims have been made to create a small forest using the Gandhi Park and Miyawaki method. 20,000 seedlings were also planted, but now most of the plants have dried up on the spot. MDA has again made preparations to plant 30,000 trees.In 2019, a plan was worked on to prepare Gandhi Park behind the spinning mill in Partapur. On August 9, 2019, 15,000 seedlings were planted under the supervision of the then additional Chief Secretary of Science and Technology, Kumar Kamlesh, but today most of the plants have dried up. The situation is that the entrance was closed by connecting it with wood.

This time, too, the same location was chosen by MDA. None of the officers tried to worry about what would happen to the already dry plants here. The applause for planting medicinal plants here has been pillaged. Asked to make a picnic spot for town but all went to no avail due to negligence.

30 lakhs spent on tenders, result zero

An action plan was drawn up to establish a small forest near the study school in Shatabdi Nagar using the Miyawaki method. An advertisement was uploaded for this. Three nursery companies took part. After that, Harish Nursery ended the tender by spending 30 lakh rupees for three years, but the situation is reversed. The plants there are dried up before they become trees. The MDA officials who show the city the dream of the small jungle are also throwing dust in the eyes of the government. Once again, preparations are being made to plant five thousand seedlings in this place. What is the work of the horticultural department
In MDA, the horticulture department is given responsibility for the care of the plants. The responsibility for the location lies with the relevant executives and employees. Questions are raised as to whether they have not seen these withering and fallen plants on earth.
