Rally marks Population Day

Chandigarh, July 12
Tree plantation, a rally and an interactive session by the Dharitri Paryavaran Club at Government Model Senior Secondary School, Sector 44, marked World Population Day. Parmod Sharma, coordinator of the campaign for peace-city Chandigarh and Yuvsatta, was the chief guest. Addressing the students, he said one of the primary causes for population growth was illiteracy and if every child helped one illiterate person read and write, it would help counter the growing numbers. The students, brimming with enthusiasm, planted trees on the campus and even took part in a rally urging passers-by to go green.
