The Union Ministry of Culture has announced on 27th June 2020 that on the call of Prime Minister Narendra Modi the Ministry has decided to celebrate a 2-week long tree plantation campaign called ‘Sankalp Parva’ from 28th June to 12th July 2020. This was informed by the Union Minister of State for Culture (Independent Charge) Prahlad Joshi.
During the nationwide lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the country has experienced the importance of a clean and healthy environment. Under the Sankalp Parva, the Ministry of Culture has recommended planting 5 tress: Bargad, Awla, Pepal, Ashok and Bel. These 5 trees represent the herbal heritage of the country.
The Ministry has asked for the participation of all and has urged the organization to ensure that each employee must plant at least one sapling of his/her choice. If the saplings of the above five trees are not available, people can do plantation of any other sapling that is available.
Sankalp Parva will be celebrated across all the Subordinate Offices, Institutions affiliated & attached to the Ministry and academies. For the success of the campaign, the Ministry has urged Institutions to ensure that employees must take care of the sapling that they have planted until it survives and flourishes.
