I've taken the initiative to adopt and develop 1650 acres of Kazipalli Reserve Forest Block near Hyderabad. Having always been a nature lover, I believe this would create an additional lung space for the city. ðÂÂ± I thank Rajya Sabha MP @mpsantoshtrs for his support. I would also like to thank the Govt of Telangana and Forest Department for giving me this opportunity! #GreenIndiaChallenge
What's the plan?
Forest department is going to convert a small portion of the Forest into Urban forest park while rest of the forest is going to be conservation zone. Kahajipalli reserve forest is known for its medicinal plants and it's extended in 3 compartments.
The forest department is going to fence the entire 1650 acres and immediately start developing Eco-park. Constructing a park gate, see-through wall, walking track, viewpoint, and medicinal plant centre would be constructed in the first phase.
All the steps to prevent encroachment of Forest land are also being taken up by the Forest Department. The program at Khajipalli took place in the presence of a very small number of guests owing to COVID restrictions.
