NMMC WASTES MONEY IN THE NAME OF TREE PLANTATION

plantation1While the threat of Global Warming is being taken up by countries worldwide, but many are busy wasting the state’s treasury in the name of nature preservation in Navi Mumbai. These are the coconut trees that were planted on the Palm Beach Road stretch a month back. And today barely four weeks passing and the trees have started to dry up. A look at these trees and the reason for their drying up forces up to question if this has indeed been wastage of the state treasury. The reason is that the trees are not being watered regularly. In addition to this, the plantations surrounding the trees are burnt affecting the trees. There are around 1000 coconut trees planted on this stretch of Palm Beach Road with each tree plantation costing Rs 135. But what difference will wastage of a lakh or two mean to NMMC which is not even bothered about the wastage of funds on these trees. While it has planted them as usual it has failed to preserve it.
