Keeping the annual tradition alive, the Siliguri Municipality Corporation and Environmental Institute are organizing a rally today to mark the ‘World Environment Day’.
The rally walked from Baghajatin Park and covered the areas of Netaji Mod and Subhashpalli. It was a joint venture between the Municipality and other related voluntary organizations with the common goal of raising consciousness among the people for their responsibility towards the environment.
“I urge you all to plant trees at mass. It is not too late to save the degrading environment, but it requires collective effort from all sections of the society,” said Shankar Ghosh, mayor of the municipal corporation.
