Patnaik for balance between ecology environment

Assam Governor Janaki Ballabh Patnaik on Tuesday called upon the people to take a pragmatic approach for striking a balance in ecology and environment rather than merely observing global events. Addressing a gathering of students at the Raj Bhavan in Guwahati on the occasion of the World Environment Day, he urged the people not to treat such occasions merely as a ceremony but take it as a day of reckoning to pledge oneself to plant a tree each for a safer and brighter future. He asked everybody to convince each of their own family members to take the 'green path'.
