Prime Minister Imran Khan will launch the countrywide monsoon plantation drive today (Monday), in a bid to turn Pakistan green. The prime minister will plant a sapling at the capital’s Fatima Jinnah Park in Sector F-9, as a gesture to encourage the masses to fully participate in the tree plantation campaign. The nationwide activity is taking place in the rainy season of monsoon as part of the Ten Billion Tree Tsunami under the auspices of the Ministry of Climate Change and the Capital Development Authority (CDA). In the next few weeks, the CDA will plant nearly half a million trees across Islamabad. Islamabad over the years has witnessed a massive reduction in tree cover, particularly in the last two decades. However, the green graph is gradually showing an upward trend after the government of PM Khan carried out a massive tree plantation campaign under the Clean and Green Pakistan Initiative. A day earlier, the premier planted a sapling in Nathiagali’s scenic resort to promote plantation for the sake of preserving the natural environment. He also urged the nation, especially youth, to join hands in gearing up for the plantation campaign.
