Hyderabad: Under the Green India Challenge, four 100-year-old trees were translocated in Mahabubnagar on Sunday. The trees were translocated from the R&B Guest House to KCR Eco-park.

The translocation became necessary as a new vegetarian and non-vegetarian market is being constructed on the premises of the guest house.

The translocation and plantation happened under the supervision of Excise minister Dr. V. Srinivas Goud and Mahabubnagar collector S. Venkat Rao. They appreciated the efforts of Green India Challenge, Vata Foundation, Public Health EE Vijaya Bhaskar, and other engineering staff who played a pivotal role in the process.

After completion of the translocation programme, minister Goud tweeted, "Successfully translocated 4 giant trees which are estimated to be 100 years old from R&B Guest House to KCR Eco-Urban Park in Mahbubnagar. Special thanks to Honourable MP Santhosh Kumar Garu for providing the necessary assistance for saving the trees. Also my compliments to the district authorities on successfully saving the giant trees by conducting replant program."

The trees were translocated without any damage. The people of Mahabubnagar appreciated the efforts of Green India Challenge (GIC) founder and Rajya Sabha MP Joginpally Santosh Kumar, the Excise minister, collector, and GIC co-founder Raghava for making the translocation possible.

District Cooperative Central Bank (DCCB) vice-chairman Koramoni Venkatayya and former market committee chairman Rakesh were also present at the event.

Green India Challenge was started by TRS MP Joginpally Santhosh Kumar in July 2018 to increase the green cover across the state and thereby fight climate change.
