Imphal, June 06 2018: Kakching Battalion of 28 Sector Assam Rifles under the aegis of HQ IGAR (South) organised a plantation drive at Battalion Headquarter, Company Operating Bases and near by villages on 05 Jun 2018 on the occasion of World Environment Day. In recent times, there has been a rapid increase in deforestation and cutting down of timber wood which has affected the environment and led to global warming. Increase in pollution has resulted in depletion of ozone layer. The mankind has been exploiting the natural resources since ages, but there has been negligible effort to restore the natural balance. Keeping this in view, Kakching Battalion including all the Company Operating Bases organised plantation drives on 05 Jun 2018 to encourage local people and youth to celebrate World Environment Day. The plantation drive included planting of various varieties of fruit bearing plants. All the villagers alongwith village Chief participated in the event with zeal and enthusiasm. The event was appreciated by the local administration and the villagers and they promised to conduct such plantation drives on regular basis. In the end Commandant of Kakching Batallion stressed upon the growing problems of waste disposal of plastics and emphasized that ban on plastic water bottles, bags and cups will result in restoration of ecological balance.
