    "It is only through plantation that we can conserve the environment," Adityanath said while chairing a review meeting of the state's special plantation programme.

    To make the plantation programme a success, public partnership is necessary so it is important to make the people aware, he said.

    A target of planting 9.16 crore saplings has been fixed for this year, he said. On Independence Day, over 5 crore saplings will be planted, he added.

    He said this target can be achieved by following the promise of 'Ek Vyakti-Ek Vriksha' (one person, one tree).
