Hyderabad: Large-scale plantation drive near the lake in Narsingi


Hyderabad: City-based NGO Sayodhya Home for Women in Need on Saturday kicked off their two-day plantation drive in the buffer zone of Lake Itikini in Narsingi Municipality. Being a conservation zone, the trees will not only help prevent encroachment but also add ecological value to the area.

The campaign supported by Randstad Offshore Services will lead to 1,500 planted saplings of native and medicinal species. The NGO will also care for the trees for a year until they become self-sufficient.


Sayodhya General Secretary Mrudula Vemulapati said, “We need to protect these small lakes in and around our city. Hyderabad cannot sustain itself without its lakes and ponds.” These trees will also help protect the lake from soil erosion and increase its water retention capacity, she said.

Along with Narsingi Municipal Chairman Mylaram Nagapurna Srinivas, Vice Chairman Vijay Babu, Municipal Commissioner Praveen Kumar Reddy and local civic officials attended the event. Appreciating the initiative, the municipal chairman emphasized that these trees will help the officials take care of the lake for many years to come.
