Allama Iqbal Open University won the first prize in the Annual Flowers Show – 2017 held here at Rose & Jasmine Garden.
The University maintained its tradition adding colour to the beauty of the capital. Our most excellent performance was the result of hard work and professional commitment of our gardeners, said Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Shahid Siddiqui while addressing them on the occasion of their success. He said the flowers are the part and parcel of our life as they add beauty and fragrance to our gardens, our homes as well our lives.
Dr Siddiqui noted that the university’s gardeners have proved their worth in promoting healthy environment in the federal capital. Lush green gardens and lawns not only added beauty to the surroundings but also had a positive impact on the environment, he remarked.
According to the University’s garden supervisor Abdul Sattar, they had displayed around 900 different verities of ‘Ghule-dawoodi’ at the three-day exhibition that attracted a large crowd.
