NAKANA: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday launched the “10 Billion Tree Plantation Drive” in Balloki.

The premier planted a sapling at the Forest Reserve in Balloki to mark the “Plant for Pakistan” drive.

Taking to Twitter, PM Imran wrote, “We are launching our #Plant4Pakistan programme and reclaiming mafia encroached land, converting it into forests and wild life parks for our future generations to fight climate change and pollution.”

Deputy Commissioner Nankana Raja Mansoor Ahmed told APP that 10,000 saplings will be planted by 2,500 school children along with PM Imran to launch the tree plantation campaign.

“The district administration has retrieved 2,500 acres of government land from illegal occupants,” he added. “A forest reserve would be developed on 1,500 acres of land while a Wildlife Sanctuary would be built on the remaining 1,000 acres of retrieved land,” the deputy commissioner said.
