PM Imran launches plantation drive ‘Plant for Pakistan’

NANKANA SAHIB: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday kicked off a plantation campaign to plant 10 billion trees in the country in Balloki forest reserve in Nankana Sahib.

The drive titled as ‘Plant for Pakistan’ was launched by Prime Minister by planting a sapling in the Forest Reserve in Balloki.

The Prime Minister took to the Twitter: “We are launching our #Plant4Pakistan programme and reclaiming mafia encroached land, converting it into forests and wildlife parks for our future generations to fight climate change and pollution.”

Deputy Commissioner Nankana Sahib Raja Mansoor Ahmed said that 10,000 saplings will be planted by 2,500 school children along with PM Imran to launch the tree plantation campaign.

“The district administration has retrieved 2,500 acres of government land from illegal occupants,” he added. “A forest reserve would be developed on 1,500 acres of land while a Wildlife Sanctuary would be built on the remaining 1,000 acres of retrieved land,” the deputy commissioner said.
