Gautam Gambhir replied to this tweet as he congratulated the government and chief minister for this step. He admitted that he doesn’t have much knowledge about the subject but he made a point that government should also take steps regarding the preservation of trees. The left-handed batsman suggested that the government should try to adopt trees as it can help in preserving them.
Good job but in my humble understanding besides plantation you also need to adopt the trees to preserve them. I hope that thrust is on that aspect too…
