Ranchi, Jun 5 (PTI) Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren on Friday appealed to the people to take a pledge to respect nature.

Extending greetings on World Environment Day, Soren called for creating a green Jharkhand for the future generations.

Let us take a pledge to conserve biodiversity, respect the nature and protect forest cover for the generation next, he said, according to a statement released by the Chief Minister's Office.

He also urged the people to plant saplings and nurture them till they become trees.
