The DYFI will plant 1.25 lakh saplings in the state as part of observing the World Environment Day on June 5.

 ‘’Each local unit will plant five saplings on public office premises and ensure their proper upkeep. The sapling distribution will be held May last week,’’ DYFI state secretary M Swaraj and treasurer K S Sunilkumar told reporters here on Wednesday.

 A state-level environment convention will be organised in the capital on May 9. Poet Sugathakumari will open the campaign at KSTA Hall at 11 a.m. 500 representatives from various parts of the state are expected to attend the convention.

 A mass run for creating awareness on environment conservation will be held on June 3. June 1 to 7 will also be observed as ‘environment week’.

Bar Licence Issue

The DYFI leaders urged the State Government to take steps to gradually reduce alcohol consumption in state. ‘’The Chief Minister’s statement that he was ready to forgo the tax revenue from liquor sales is an eyewash. He can at least avoid liquor traders from the Cabinet,’’ they said.       

 The DYFI leaders said that the government’s plan to renew licences after collecting election fund from liquor barons has gone awry. Excise Minister K Babu’s efforts to influence the judge through his confidant, an advocate, was condemnable, they said.
