PMC | Artificial trees will not be planted during G20 meeting
Pune: Following criticism, the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has canceled its plan to plant decorative artificial trees on select roads as part of efforts to beautify the city during the upcoming G-20 meeting. The G-20 meeting is scheduled to be held in Pune on 16 and 17 January.
The PMC has been entrusted with the responsibility of improving the infrastructure and beautification of the city during the visit. This includes repair, cleaning and beautification of the routes where the delegates are likely to travel from Pune airport.
Trees were to be planted at these places
This includes Ganeshkhind Road, Senapati Bapat Road, Baner, Balewadi, Sinhagad Road and Mumbai-Bangalore Bypass roads. PMC chief engineer Srinivas Kandul said that there was a plan to plant trees with artificial lights along the road, but there is a lot of public opposition to spending money on artificial trees, so the PMC will not do it now.
