Lahore, July 29, 2021 (PPI-OT): Provincial Minister for Forests Muhammad Sibtain Khan called on Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar to discuss matters of mutual interest. Both extended felicitations to PM Imran Khan over PTI’s wonderful success in the AJK elections.
Talking on the occasion, the CM said the results are writing on the wall for the opponents as the outcome has shown that PTI is the most popular party in the country. The hollow slogan of giving respect to vote has met a natural death, he maintained. Meanwhile, the government has approved forest policy as well as protected area act and 6 crore saplings will also be planted during the ongoing monsoon season, he said.
A total of 12 crore saplings will be planted during the current year, he added. The CM expressed the satisfaction that 14 thousand acres of forest land have been retrieved from squatters to utilize it for plantation. He regretted that the environmental pollution had increased due to the ruthless cutting of trees in previous tenure.
On the other hand, the incumbent government has established more than 600 nurseries in the province to motivate the people to plant trees for maintaining a green environment, he concluded. Sibtain Khan said the success of PTI in AJK elections is the victory of norms of transparency and honesty. The people have preferred trustworthy leadership while the past rulers have become a symbol of disgrace, he added.
