A plantation drive was organised by Gujranwala Guru Nanak Institute of Management & Technology, Civil Lines (GGNIMT) under the guidelines of AICTE. More than 250 students from varied courses BBA, B.Com(H), BCA, BHMCT, B.Sc(FD), MBA and MCA participated and planted various saplings in the campus during the campaign. They made an appeal to the students of other departments to protect and nurture the plants.
The Faculty members also showed their solidarity to protect the Environment and create a Cleaner and Greener Campus by turning out in large numbers .The students not only participated with utmost zeal, they even pledged to create an awareness about conservation of nature.
Prof Manjit Singh Chhabra, Director, GGNIMT said, “tree plantation is an indication of prosperity. Plants eliminate the pollution and are beneficial for the health, too. Our motive is not just to plant the saplings but rear and nurture them as well. The number of saplings planted is immaterial, what matters the most is to pay meticulous attention for their nurture, protection and growth.”
Dr. Harpreet Singh, Principal, GGNIMT encouraged students to plant more trees and take care of their plantation thereafter. He appreciated the students for their enthusiastic participation and love towards the nature. He further emphasized on the need for associating the college students in plantation drives and awareness programs in order to evolve them as better and responsible citizens of a nation.
