CDA plants over 150,000 saplings


The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has so far planted more than 150,000 saplings in the on-going tree plantation campaign in the federal capital and surrounding areas with the help of residents since last two week.

The campaign is in full swing on the directives of Chairman CDA Noorul Amin Mengal and the children were engaged in planting saplings in differ-ent parks and free-of-cost fruit trees also distributed among citizens, an official informed on Tuesday. He said that the CDA chief has given a target to officials concerned to plant around 500,000 saplings during the spring season and the plantation drive had already kicked off at the F-9 Park. The official said that the authority was involving children to make the cam-paign a success, adding that, while the CDA, the private sector and civil soci-ety had an important role to make the tree plantation drive a success.
