PM launches ‘Ek Ped Maa Ke Naam’ Campaign

On June 5, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the ‘Ek Ped Maa Ke Naam’ campaign to commemorate the World Environment Day. He planted a Peepal tree sapling at Buddha Jayanti Park in Delhi. He was accompanied by Union Environment Minister Bhupender Yadav and Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena.

About This Campaign

On World Environment Day, P.M started a campaign ‘EK PED MAA KE NAAM’ and called upon everyone, in India and around the world, to plant a tree in the coming days as a tribute to our mother.

Why this campaign was important

P.M planted a tree in line with our commitment to protecting Mother Nature and making sustainable lifestyle choices. It would make we all very happy that in the last decade, India has undertaken numerous collective efforts which have led to increased forest cover across the nation. This is great for our quest towards sustainable development. It is also commendable how local communities have risen to the occasion and taken a lead in this.
