New Delhi: Newly-appointed Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju has directed all Sports Authority of India (SAI) regional centers to plant saplings of trees specific to their areas inside their campuses as part of a 'Clean and Green' campaign.

A circular has been issued to all 12 SAI regional centers for holistic development of a 'Clean and Green' sports campus, the body said in a statement.

"The result of the plantation drive is expected to be two-pronged - that of increasing the green cover in the campuses, as also nurturing local plants that are shade-giving and fruit-bearing," the SAI stated.

"Environment-friendly methods like rainwater harvesting will be used for the upkeep of the green cover," it added.

Special awareness workshops will also be organised for athletes training and living at the regional centers to "align them with the 'Clean and Green' mission".
