Stressing on the need to conserve the ridge and proper utilisation of gram sabha land, the RWA and villagers , with the help of environment activists, will safeguard the environment of Mahipalpur, Vasant Kunj and its surrounding areas.

“Tree plantation drives will begin from February 17 on the land, which has seen rampant digging activity by government agencies in violation of the Supreme Court orders,” said a statement issued after the meeting.
