The BTC government planted a large number of trees at Kokrajhar Medical College and Nursing College on the eve of the World Environment Day Observation.

"The Green Bodoland Mission" will encompass various activities, including large-scale tree plantation drives, the establishment of green belts, and community-based ecological projects. The scheme is designed not only to preserve the existing green cover but also to expand it, ensuring a healthier and more sustainable environment for future generations.

The BTC government’s initiative is expected to bring about significant positive changes in the region's ecological balance, contributing to the overall well-being of its residents and biodiversity.
