Srinagar: The Central Government on Saturday distributed vegetable saplings to the locals with an aim to boost kitchen garden culture in Srinagar at an economical price.
People queued in large numbers to buy the saplings. Growing vegetables in the backyards will give relief to people from buying vegetables from the market at heavy prices and will also keep the city clean and green.
“I am very sure that the quality of the saplings will be very good as the government has proper experts and scientists. We will now grow vegetables in the backyard and will not be much dependable on the market,” said Meraj-u-din Ahmad, a customer.
