. @Dev_Fadnavis need not give an certificate of how #Ecofriendly he is to anyone

Planted 23 crore trees already

Set up 24-hour toll free helpline 1926 #HelloForest

Created #GreenArmy, a body of dedicated volunteers to plant trees

#ForestSurveyofIndia has declared #Maharashtra as the ONLY state which has registered a GROWTH in #forestCover in past years

Not just #forests, but trees outside jungles have also seen a spike
253 m2 rise in #trees
82 km2 rise in #mangroves

Survival rate of the 23 crore trees planted

2016 72 %
2017 80 %
2018 85 %

Impressive, isn’t it?

More focus has been on areas of the state with LESS forest cover like Marathwada, Western Maharashtra & Vidarbha

Plus, @Dev_Fadnavis govt had BANNED #SingleUsePlastic statewide

#Maharashtra had the dubious record of being INDIA’s largest waste creator, given by @MoHUA_India

Now, state has been able to reduce the plastic waste generation by HALF

Non-recyclable plastic goes to waste to fuel plants and Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) plant where the plastic is compressed and converted into pellets and later used as #fuel while the recyclable plastic goes to the #recycling plants

Plus, #Maharashtra has made it #mandatory to use waste plastic and industrially-recycled plastic in all #road construction and repair works

The move will ensure roads with better quality, more waterproof at lesser price and help tackle the waste plastic problem

He has speeded up #metro work in #Mumbai #Pune & #Nagpur

Just 7 DAYS of #MumbaiMetro operation will cut an amount of CO2 = to that absorbed by 2,646 trees in a single year (no. of trees to be cut in #Aarey) thus making it an ecofriendly project in the long run

UN Framework for Climate Change (#UNFCC) says that 2.61 metric tonnes of CO2 will be reduced once #Metro3 will be operational

The #MumbaiMetro operations will reduce CO2 to the same level as planting 2 crore trees - not practically possible in Mumbai

#Metro & #pollution have a reverse relationship

10- yr calculation shows that the network will take #4.3lakhVehicles off the roads every day

Also, 2.43 lakh litre of fuel will not burn ( thus saving environ as well as Forex)

#JalyuktaShivar to make #Maharashtra #DroughtFree

11,000 villages now drought-free.

Water storage capacity improved to 1.6 lakh Trillion Cubic Metre (TMC)

benefitted 20 lakh hectares of protected irrigated land

increased cropping intensity to 1.25 to 1.5 times than before
#JalYuktaShivar cotd-

agriculture productivity jumped up 30-50 % in these areas where water tanker dependency dropped from 6,140 to 1,666

Plus #WaterGrid ( #Israel technology) connecting ALL DAMs to optimise water usage

@Dev_Fadnavis has promised river diversion in next term
Looking at all these aspects

#Metros in cities
Tree plantation overall (Govt just 22 lakh short of 33 crore plantation target under #GreeningMaharashtra drive)

I would say my vote will go to @Dev_Fadnavis to return as most ecofreindly CM ever
