Nature lovers are showing their support for the “Green India Challenge.” The founder of the challenge, Joginipalli Santosh Kumar, who is also a Rajya Sabha MP, stated that those with progressive thoughts are planting saplings, protecting soil, and conserving nature. He praised two individuals, cyclist Mohit Niranjan and Green Entrepreneur Chandrakant Sagar, for making a positive impact in their lives by joining the cause.
Santosh Kumar, Niranjan, and Chandrakant planted saplings at Begumpet and were honored for their efforts. Niranjan, a 21-year-old cyclist, launched the “Save Soil and Sustainability” campaign in Uttar Pradesh. Inspired by the Green India Challenge, he cycled 6300 km to raise awareness about the importance of soil conservation. Santosh Kumar commended Chandrakant Sagar for his campaign to create a “Plastic Free society” despite facing challenges as a differently abled person. Chandrakant set an example by establishing a non-woven bags business through recycling plastic bags and providing employment to others with disabilities.
Mohit Niranjan shared that he was inspired by the Green India Challenge to focus on saving soil through plantation efforts. He is educating people about the importance of soil conservation in line with the values of the challenge. The program also saw participation from Isha volunteers Shailaja, Raghav, Vikas, and Green India Challenge representative Raghav, among others.
