The vision of a 'Clean Siachen-Green Siachen' is indeed on the verge of being accomplished, as is evident from the results of the plantation drive by Siachen Brigade, he said.
Acharya has vast experience of covering the northern sector of Indian Army from Kashmir to Ladakh and Doda-Poonch sectors. He was also awarded with vice-chief of army staff's instant commendation certificate.
The soldiers have already planted a total of 1,17,538 saplings in Siachen sector.
The award is likely to be given at a function in New Delhi in March this year.
