Subhasish Mondal, secretary of the social organisation, said: “We have conceived a plan to plant one lakh saplings of mangrove trees, including Byne, Sundari, Pashur and Kholsi, in the region in the next two months so that the area again turns green and become capable enough to sustain any natural calamities like cyclones and high tide”.
