Jaishankar succeeds Sushma Swaraj as the EAM, while Muraleedharan was preceded by former Army Chief VK Singh as the Minister of State. On the occasion of World Environment Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday urged people to plant more saplings for a better tomorrow.
He also asked them to find ways to make planet Earth more clean and green. "We are born and brought up in such an environment where nature is treated as God. We must think of ways of making the planet more clean and green. The rainy season is coming, therefore, I urge you all not to only plant a sapling but also make arrangements for its care so that it can grow in the coming years. We all must connect ourselves with the environment," he said in a video posted on Twitter.
