ISLAMABAD: Inaugurating the monsoon plantation drive in Islamabad, Prime Minister Imran Khan said Pakistan is now recognised as a leading country which is taking steps to reverse carbon emissions.
Speaking at the plantation site on Monday (July 26), PM Khan urged the countrymen to participate in the tree plantation campaign to further develop the country’s forest cover.
Premier said, “Our forest cover is very less when compared with other regional countries as this matter was neglected in the past.”
PM Imran Khan said efforts would have to be made to turn Pakistan green to fight global warming and pollution.
The prime minister said it will bring a big revolution if each person plants at least one sapling during the next three weeks.
The PM said he has also directed the commissioners and deputy commissioners to ensure plantation at empty spaces in cities. He said our aim is to leave behind a better Pakistan for future generations.
He said the government’s ten billion tree Tsunami project as well as the plantation of one billion trees in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is widely acknowledged across the world.
