Balasaheb Bhausaheb Thorat (Marathi: बाळासाहेब भाऊसाहेब थोरात) (7 Feb 1953), is a leader of farmers and Indian National Congress legislator. He is well known in the cooperative movement, as the founder of the Sangamner Cooperative Sugar Mill and Milk Cooperative, and former president of the Sangamner District and State Cooperative Bank. He is recognized for his constructive work in Sangamner taluka and Akole taluka. He has founded cooperative educational institutions in Sangamner. Previously, he served as Minister of Agriculture and as Minister of Revenue, and Khar Lands in the Government of Maharashtra.[1]

Dandakaranya Movement[edit]

Concerned about global warming, aridity and deforestation, Bhausaheb Thorat led a campaign to plant 45 million trees every year in Maharashtra. In the epic Ramayana, the sage Agastya turned the arid Dandakaranya into a green heaven through a massive drive of tree planting. A book, The Man Who Planted Trees, an allegorical tale by French author Jean Giono, also inspired Bhausaheb Thorat. For this he launched the Dandakaranya Abhiyaan in June 2006 at Sangamner.[2]
