“Development and environment issues are inter-dependable and therefore it is very important to think about environmental issues while planning for city development”,said Congress MP Suresh Kalmadi. He was speaking at the inaugural function of ‘Environment Friend’ organized for youngsters.
Kalmadi inaugurated the function by watering a plant. He said instead of depending on any government agencies,the change can be brought up by mass participation for the cause. “Pune is a youngsters place. If they decide no one can stop turning Pune into a ‘Green city’. After the CYG,Pune can host Olympics and this could be possible only by the support of people here. In such case city will undergo facelift with huge developments “,he added.
