Nagaon, November 8: The banana trees which were used for decorations during Diwali celebrations will be fed to the elephants here.

It may be noted that the banana trees are put up in front of houses and shops as part of decorations on the entrances during Diwali.

The locals of Samaguri and Puranigudam collected the trees and distributed the same in Dhulpahar, Chapanala, Balijuri. The trees were dispatched in four mini trucks to these places in the district. The initiative was taken by nature-lover Binod Dulu Bora. He was supported by district forest officials.
