The Chhattisgarh government is developing Krishna Kunjs in urban areas with the aim of promoting tree plantation and saving our cultural heritage.
In just one year, these Krishna Kunjs have transformed into lush green spaces adorned with numerous trees.
Under the scheme, 55,781 trees have been planted across 224 acres in 169 urban centres.
Aiming at motivating people to plant trees and save existing ones, the government has undertaken to develop Krishna Kunj in all urban bodies.
