Speaking at the event, Parida explained the initiative, inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "Ek Ped Maa ke Naam" (One Tree for Mother) campaign. "We have decided that members of Mission Shakti, along with officials from the Women and Child Welfare Department and the Tourism Department, will each plant at least one sapling. Mission Shakti members have been given the target of planting 2.5 crore saplings within a week," Parida said.

Parida also mentioned plans to document the achievement and send it to the Prime Minister. "We aim to plant 4.5 crore saplings, representing the 4.5 crore population of the state," she added.

 

The Deputy Chief Minister emphasized that each Mission Shakti member would plant a sapling in her residential premises or by the roadside and nurture it as she would her mother. The Agriculture, Horticulture, and Forest Departments are supplying a variety of fruit-bearing, flowering, decorative, and other types of trees for the campaign.
