plantation underscored

Planting trees on the earth is actually a heavenly activity, which is, in fact, necessary for survival of the planet.

These views were expressed by Shamim Asghar Rao, Resident Editor Nawa-i-Waqt Multan at a ceremony jointly organised by The Citizens Forum and Senior Working Journalists Forum here. He said that the rapid urbanisation and conversion lands into residential towns and commercial centres have given rise to temperature manifold, forcing the human to shift on to machines and artificial equipments. He stressed that it is not the duty of the government alone to arrange plantation, rather every individual is bound to join the drive to turn Pakistan into green for generations to come.



Later the chief guest, accompanied by hosts, planted a sapling and prayed for the welfare of the nation. Plantation event was arranged by Muhammad Nasim, finance secretary Citizens Forum.
