LAHORE Punjab Governor Sardar Latif Khan Khosa has stressed upon the world community to evolve a comprehensive strategy for overcoming the menace of environmental pollution. Addressing a seminar organised by Pakistan Engineering Congress on Changing Environment Pattern and its Impact with Focus on Pakistan here at a local hotel on Wednesday, the governor said that besides facilitating the humanity, the inventions were also proving hazardous in the shape of environmental degradation. Latif Khosa said that the menace was not relating to a specific part of the world and it had global impacts. He said global warming had badly affected this part of the region especially Pakistan. Global warming, he said, has made a negative impact on agriculture by reducing yield. He said that the menace has also damaged forestry, wild life, livestock and fish farming in the country. He suggested the world powers to join hands and take radical measures for improving the environment. He also urged the media to play its due role in raising public awareness about environmental issues. He asked engineers to guide the government functionaries for curbing the menace of pollution. President PEC Engr Husnain Ahmad and other experts also addressed the participants. Meanwhile, while to the newsmen after the function, Latif Khosa said that the Secretary Establishment had no authority to transfer any officer over grade 20 without getting approval from the Prime Minister. He said the federal government respected the judiciary and there would be no confrontation between institutions. He said the PM had the right to change the Secretary Establishment for misusing of power. He said that the country was facing poverty, unemployment, terrorism and many other crises and all the political forces should make efforts for the prosperity and relief for the masses. He suggested the politicians to avoid weakening the federation by undue criticism. The PPP government has restored the constitution to its original form so it does not want any kind of clash with the Supreme Court of Pakistan, he said. To a question about in house change, he said that the party wishing in house change was not holding local government election in Punjab.
