Noting that there was grave threat to the earth due to global warming, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Sunday urged the students to take active part in making the green mission a success in Bihar.

"We have set out on a green mission to extend forest cover in Bihar to 15 per cent over the next five years as against 10 per cent at present," he said at a congregation of students hosted by the JD(U) students front.

The green mission campaign launched last year has already started showing results as the forest covered has gone up by one per cent, Kumar said, adding that 24 crore saplings will be planted over the next five years to reach the target.

The students must play a major role in tree plantation and preservation, besides carrying out a campaign among the people about protecting ecology and environment as the mother nature faces a grave threat to its existence due to global warming and a slew of other factors, he said.

The Chief Minister said that his party has made tree plantation one of its core agendas, and all its members are required to plant at least one sapling to showcase their commitment to environment.
