Hyderabad: GHMC Commissioner Dr. B. Janardhan Reddy has appealed to the heads of all government departments and NGOs to join hands with the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation to achieve the target of plantation of 1 crore trees as part of Telangana Harithaharam programme.
According to the Commissioner, the corporation was able to plant nearly 84 lakh saplings last year due to the cooperation of various departments and NGOs.
