Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has launched ‘Mission Harita Andhra Pradesh’, with the theme ‘green cover for a happy living’, by planting saplings at Sunkollu village under Nuzividu mandal in Krishna district.
Interestingly, Harita Andhra Pradesh was a pet project of late chief minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy but Chandrababu has now made it a ‘mission’ with a new slogan Vanam-Manam (forest and we). The objective of the mission is to increase the green cover in the state to 50 per cent by the year 2029.
