The Ministry of Home Affairs has asked the Paramilitary troops to make gardens in the name of martyred jawans and put their photos to commemorate their selfless sacrifice for the nation, reports ANI. “All forces should create and dedicate a vatika to the martyrs. Their picture should also be placed at the vatika,” the MHA said in a letter after a review meeting held last month. The MHA directed the forces to build the special gardens in places with maximum martyrdom like Pulwama.
“A special vatika (gardens) should be made for the martyrs of Pulwama and likewise where many jawans have sacrificed their lives for the country, and police memorial-like statues with a rifle, along with a helmet on its top should be installed there in their honour,” the MHA said in the letter. “Tree Plantation Drive-2020 was launched by Union Home minister Amit Shah which was organised by the Ministry of Coal. Under this project, the ministry will plant trees in 6,000 acres of land in 38 districts across 10 states.
“In the blind race for development, we forget the mantra of Indian culture that nature is our mother and it cannot be exploited. This is the reason why the temperature of the earth is increasing and badly affecting the climate. The world is afraid of climate change.. trees are friends of humans and only trees can save us,” said Shah.
