Animal Husbandry Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav today said plantation of saplings is a social responsibility that one should follow.
The minister was planting saplings on KIMS Hospital premises at Ranigunj in Secunderabad along with officials as part of Harithaharam III phase. Speaking on the occasion, Talasani said it was everyone’s responsibility to protect our environment from getting polluted.

The government has taken up the massive plantation drive to make Telangana green by expanding green cover to fight pollution and get more rains.
Plantation drive is going on in schools, colleges, and educational institutions, offices, hospitals, and government offices, he said.
