DELHI: As part of its nationwide campaign to leave a greener, better environment for our future generations, Aakash Educational Services Limited, the national leader in test preparatory services, conducted a massive tree plantation drive in Delhi to make the city green.
The faculty and hundreds of students of Aakash Institute planted 10,000 saplings at a park in Janakpuri in West Delhi commensurate with the number of students who have qualified from the Capital in various competitive examinations. The campaign called “Green Delhi, Clean Delhi,” was organized to create better awareness about the importance of having a green cover for the city.
Mr. Narendra Kumar Chawla, Ex-Mayor/Municipal Councillor, South Delhi Municipal Corporation, Delhi graced the event as the Chief Guest. He said on the occasion, “The environment today is facing a lot of problems like pollution and degradation of green cover and if we don’t address these issues today we would be doing immense harm to our future generation. Planting trees is a noble activity that benefits the environment immensely. It is heartening to note that Aakash Institute is environment conscious and is taking part in such activities. I hope these kind of plantation drives are held in all parts of Delhi and it turns into a greener and more beautiful Capital.”
Added Mr. Aakash Chaudhry, Co-Promoter & CEO at Aakash Educational Services Ltd. and Founder & Trustee at Plaksha University, “We at Aakash Institute feel an immense responsibility towards the environment and Mother Nature because of the increasing pollution and destruction of the natural habitat of birds and animals. Our students and faculty have regularly been running tree plantation drives in Aakash Institutes across the country. We renew our pledge to make the environment around us clean and green.”
Earlier, AESL has held such plantation drives across India in states like Punjab, Haryana, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra among others.
