Students and teachers of religious seminaries will plant trees with an objective to promote neat and clean environment in south Punjab.
Caretaker Dawat-e-Islami Alipur Dr Jamshaid Akhtar talking to APP said that Dawat-e-Islami, a religious organization, would mark August 1 as “Tree Plantation Day” in south Punjab.
The tree plantation campaign will be done in line with Faizan Global Relief Fund FGRF, a welfare department of Dawat-e-Islami. Dr Jamshaid, however, planted a tree and inaugurated the drive.
He informed that students and teachers of all religious seminaries would take part actively in national cause. Planting a tree is part of continuous charity, he remarked.
The dear homeland would be made neat, clean and pollution free by planting maximum trees.
He urged students, teachers and other citizens to take special care of plants so that these could be nurtured to complete tree.
Meanwhile, MPA Chaudhry Latif Nazar while planting a sapling at Government Girls Degree College Ayyub Research Centre Faisalabad under the Clean & Green Pakistan programme said. Principal Dr Saira Khanum and faculty members were also present.
He appealed to the citizens to plant maximum saplings, as plantation was the best way to lower the pollution level in the country. All segments of society should take part in the plantation drive.
He appreciated the plantation drive in the college and urged students to also take part in clean and green programme.
Maximum plantation is required for making the environment pollution-free and turning the Prime Minister’s 10 Billion Tree Tsunami dream into a reality.
