From Our Correspondent

TURA, May 6: BJP leader and Tura MDC Bernard Marak has started an initiative to plant 10,000 trees under Tura constituency alone with a target of over 1 million trees for the entire Garo Hills region. The initiative has been named ‘Mission 1 Million (M1M)’.
“This initiative is aimed to cover the catchment areas which fall under Nokmas and other water sources which are alarmingly drying up in Garo Hills. This is a threat to human life especially the younger generation which will face the consequences if nature is not cared for now,” Marak felt.
Pointing out that it is sad nature has been destroyed by human greed and the ecosystem thrown out of balance, the Tura MDC warned that climate change was alarming and bound to affect the entire world badly in the near future. He added that it was the duty of every individual to care for mothernature to ensure that restores back the balance.
According to Marak, eco clubs would soon be formed in colleges, schools and A’khings to take up the plantation mission in Garo Hills, even as he invited young people to join the mission to make Meghalaya Green and stable.
