It was an interesting sight to see Member of Legislative Assembly Sandeep Naik cleaning the Vashi bus depot along with 250 volunteers, on Saturday.

Mayor Sagar Naik, Corporators Raju Shinde, Ramesh Shinde and Shilpa More also took part in the cleanliness drive which was part of the ‘Green Movement 2010’ campaign by Sandeep Naik led NGO Green Hope.

After planting one lakh trees in 2008 and two lakh in 2009, the NGO wants to plant two lakh trees in the next three months. “Green Hope will distribute free saplings in the city to ensure maximum participation of environment conscious and friendly residents, the working class and students of schools and colleges,” said Sandeep Naik.

“It is imperative that all sections unite to stop global warming and protect the environment. That is why we are involving the common man in the drive,” he added.
