National Green Tribunal Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel on Saturday called out authorities and citizens for restoration of the environment and the ecosystem.

He had earlier said that there are huge gaps in compliance of environment rules and there were clear governance deficits on the subject and higher authorities are not adequately concerned about the plight of the citizens.

“Let all citizens and authorities take pledge on this World Environment Day 2021 to come together for ecosystem restoration, in keeping with long traditions of our ancient and great culture, for happiness of all and for saving the Mother Earth,” Justice Goel said in a message to the public on World Environment Day.

World Environment Day is celebrated on June 5 and the theme for this year’s event is ”promotion of biofuels for better environment”.
