Deolali Camp : Monsoon is only a month away, but authorities of Deolali Cantonment Board (DCB) have still not woken up to implement its ambitious ‘Green Deolali, Beautiful Deolali’ programme, said senior Shiv Sena leader Pramod Mojad fearing that the concept should not merely turn out to be just an illusion.
“The ruling DCB representatives have still not undertaken work of tree saplings plantation in the cantonment area due to its negligent attitude and unpreparedness even as monsoon has just a month away from arrival,” alleged Mojad.
There seems no readiness and concrete steps on the part of the board to undertake tree plantation drive in the area on a larger scale. It seems that the board this time is not in a position to encourage schools, colleges and social institutions in Deolali for tree plantation works which they undertake every year.
Mojad further said that lack of proper planning, maintenance of records and failure to follow safety norms on the plantation of tree saplings by the board authorities led to the failure in the transparency in governance by the BJP during its 2-year tenure.
“Tree plantation programme should not be restricted to just photo ops,” Mojad added.
