Vishwas Mote spoke at length about the youth involvement in the campaign. “Our young tree parents like Haroon Shorey, Yug Ajay Devgn, Ahaan and Samiha Chhatwal, Vedant Gill and my son Advait are the future of this campaign.
Besides the celebs, citizens joined in too and became the protector of the trees, thus setting forth a movement that will make a difference leaving behind green footprints.
"Vishwas Mote, Asst Commissioner K West Ward is a visionary. It is thanks to his efforts, that we, at Make Earth Green Again MEGA Foundation, are helping make the vital difference of making our ward get back its lost green glory. The celeb participation and the ever-willing citizen support, as well as that of the police who are willingly planting trees, strengthens our resolve," expressed Anusha Srinivasan Iyer, Founder, Make Earth Green Again MEGA Foundation.
The campaign has also seen active participation from police personnel and citizens alike. And the numbers seem to only be growing. Check out the adjacent pictures!
