Chandigarh, June 05, 2019: Students and Teachers of Eco Club of Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana, on Wednesday, took the initiative in the direction of fighting with the problem of pollution and temperature rise on the occasion of World Environment Day. On the day plant saplings and pots were distributed among the students while they also installed water pots for the birds so that birds can have water during the heat.
Giving information about this, the head of the Forestry Department, Dr. Sanjeev Kumar Chauhan said that although there are a number of plants and trees in the campus, still due to the deforestation, the temperature is continuously rising. Also, the birds lost their place of living. That’s why they took this initiative.
