Islamabad, July 25, 2021 (PPI-OT):Prime Minister Imran Khan will launch the countrywide monsoon plantation drive tomorrow (Monday) in a bid to turn Pakistan green. The Prime Minister will plant a sapling at Fatima Jinnah Park in Sector F-9 Islamabad as a gesture to encourage the masses to fully participate in the tree-plantation campaign.
