Over 200 Delhi handicapped plant trees to mark Environment Day

New Delhi, June 5 (IANS) Over 200 handicapped people, including students, participated in a plantation drive here on Sunday.

The drive was organised on the occasion of World Environment Day, as part of the Clean Air India Movement (ClAIM), the country’s biggest awareness programme against air pollution.

The participants marched from India Gate to Guru Harikrishna Public School at Purana Quila road, where the saplings were planted.
