He called upon all the officers and employees of PSPCL to contribute as much as possible by planting maximum number of trees around their offices, grids and vacant places in their homes and to take care of plants like children. He hoped that in near future, PSPCL would play a key role in creating the pollution-free environment in the state, leading to “Tandrust Punjab”.
