WAZIRABAD-The Tehsil Municipal Authority (TMA) has started plantation of 4,000 saplings on self-help basis on old GT Road, from Maulana Zafar Ali Khan Chowk to Nullah Palkhu bridge.

AC M Anwar Baryar stated that cost of the plantation drive would not exceed Rs124,000 which had been contributed by the officers of local Revenue Dept and the TMA. He informed that each officer had contributed Rs10,000. He said that the saplings of shadowy trees would nourish within a year which would not only beautify the area but also control the reflections of vehicles’ headlights plying on the road. A number of gardeners from all local departments will complete the plantation.
