‘i Rakhwali’ app to help common man become ‘greenery saviours’ in Punjab

Punjab Government has decided to now induct common people as ‘Greenery Saviours’ to further strengthen its drive to preserve and maintain environment in state. Towards this aim, the state Forest Department has decided a dedicated application ‘i Rakhwali’, downloading which people can become a part of this mission to save environment from degradation.

Disclosing this, Forest Minister Sadhu Singh Dharmsot said the application has been developed to ensure greenery and to protect environment, and its main aim was to inspire people to plant more trees. At that time, people did not know about various nurseries of department and the procedure how to obtain plant saplings. With launch of this app, people have got to know about geographical location of these nurseries and have easy access to free plants and saplings.

The Minister further said that on these lines ‘i Rakhwali’ app is being launched under which department would motivate people to save environment and seek their cooperation. In today’s time, forests are fast depleting and trees are being felled to make way for different development projects. Many people think and are concerned about this and want to do something about this but in absence of information cannot do much, he added. We have come up with this app to encourage people to come forward and contribute towards environment protection, the Minister added.
