Agriculture includes crops, fruits, vegetables, livestock, dairy, poultry, honey bee. Please imagine utility and importance of these in our survival, health and prosperity. Now imagine wisdom and vision of those, who are planning to replace internationally recognised and funded agricultural research institution NARC, for these items with its 1395 acres research farmland in Islamabad, with a housing scheme for quick money.

Are there no sane minds or do we have only greedy politicians out to make a personal buck? I on behalf of all Pakistanis would like to request someone in power to stop such flagrant and outright bad decision. We all must try for a better tomorrow and a better country or we will be waterless and foodless in the next few years.
