TEZU, Sep 18: Taking ‘Horn ok Beej’, the mission to promote greenery in far corners of the country, a three-member team headed by Advocate Sachin Pingle reached Tezu on Thursday morning.
Coming from the western-most point of Koteshvar in Gujarat, the other members of the team are Joydev and Durgesh Roy. Starting the mission on September 9 last, they travelled 3525 km and arrived here after a 9-day journey beating all odds. Essentially nature lovers, the team members had sown seeds of about 30 kg of a variety of trees namely Chilhar, Bahava, Khair, Ain, Gulmohar, Shivam and Bargat on their way in Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal, Assam and finally in Arunachal Pradesh.
“This is the first and longest seeding expedition we have kicked off under the slogan ‘Ped Hai to Hum Hai’ which has been well applauded. It’s my ardent appeal to all to plant more seeds for a beautiful tomorrow for the posterity”, appealed Sachin during his short message from the office of the Lohit Forest Division.  Durgesh who joined the team from Bihar said he derived inspiration from his uncle who has covered 26 acres of land with greenery.
Lauding the noble intention of the mission, DFO S Manyu said: “This kind of awareness campaign on greenery and protecting the earth from global warming needs to be disseminated widely.”
Later, the team along with DFO and his staff sowed seeds at the entrance of the Mini Secretariat and a Certificate of Appreciation was also given to the team.
