Upset over tree cutting, TDP MLA spends his money to translocate

“And the tree was happy” what if every story ended like this. In an age where, politicians are least bothered of translocation of trees and are hail deforestation, Penamaluru MLA Bode Prasad is paving way for a happy tree story.

Four Peepal trees located near Poranki along the Vijayawada-Machilipatnam highway were about to be meet the fate of thousands of fallen trees as a part of national highway widening.

TDP MLA took it upon himself to save the trees and arranged cranes to transplant them to a different location. The leader was dismayed at the thought of the trees being axed which have been standing tall since his childhood.

At a personal expense of one lakh rupees, with the help of cranes, workers and local police, the MLA personally supervised the work and efficaciously changed the location of the trees on Sunday night. The branches of the trees were cut and uprooted by digging a four-foot deep hole at the same distance from the trunk. Special care was taken to ensure the root system was not damaged. The trees were then planted in a deep pit at Bandar Canal Bund, near Tadigadapa Bridge.

The leader urged the authorities to deal thoughtfully when chopping down trees.
