Amid the crisis situation in Manipur, a woman from Wangjing has appealed to the people of the state to plant as many trees as possible, saying she would help provide tree saplings free of cost.
Maibam Ningol Hijam ongbi Memma Devi of Wangjing Hodamba Maning Leikai Pukhri Achouba, Wangjing, Thoubal district has been nurturing various types of plants and has been making new plant saplings.
Showing the growth of plants at her residence, Memma Devi lamented that she won't be able to carry out tree plantation this year like before due to the prevailing conflict situation in Manipur.
She recalled that she celebrated this year’s World Environment Day on June 5 with JSS Thoubal district and Children Care and Education Foundation Wangjing, and distributed plant saplings to several people as a part of the celebration.
Memma has varieties of plants which include fruit bearing trees, medicinal plants, decorative plants and Stink beans (Yongchak) plants. She said she can provide them free of cost if people wish to plant saplings of the said varieties.
Her fruit sapplings included that of mango, jackfruit, lemon, gooseberry, papaya, grapes, chorphon, guava, pomelo and a medicinal plant called Ningthou khongli.
She appealed to the the local clubs and organisations to contact her through her number 9378111471 and avail the tree saplings for free, while urging the people to plant more trees.
