To carry out a mass tree plantation drive under the initiative ’Save Earth Ride' at Singngat sub-division, riders of the Royal Riders club of Churachandpur were flagged off at Thinhkangphai village by DGP, LM Khaute on Saturday morning.

The mass tree plantation drive will be carried out till the Indo-Myanmar border village of Behiang.

The Royal Riders team, that had organised such two events earlier, planted more than 200 saplings including at Singhat CHC campus and approach road to Behiang village on Saturday as their original plan to plant saplings at the roadside of Teddim road was not possible due the ongoing NH 102B construction. The tree plantation drive is being held in collaboration with the Biking Community of India.

Before the flagging off, Khaute said that he has a close association with the Royal Riders in the state and he was honoured to flag off more than three such of their efforts with the mission to save the planet.

Mentioning global warming, the DGP also said that deforestation and excessive pollution have led to melting of glaciers which is alarming. He expressed his hope that the effort of the new generations will bear fruit and asked the Royal Riders to continue their initiative.
