Green cover for a happy living
N Chandrababu Naidu, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, has recently launched ‘Mission Harita Andhra Pradesh’, with the theme “Green cover for a happy living”, by planting saplings at Sunkollu village under Nuzividu mandal in Krishna district. The purpose of the mission is to increase the green cover in the state to 50 % by the year 2029. Currently, Andhra Pradesh has 23 % green cover (forest area) and another 3 % non-forest, besides 13 lakh hectares of degraded forest. The mission was a pet project of late chief minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy but Naidu has made it a mission with a new slogan “Vanam-Manam (forest and we)”.
