‘Ghar Ghar Aik Shajar’ campaign inaugurated

Islamabad: Federal Minister for Climate Change Senator Mushahidullah Khan on Thursday

inaugurated a plantation campaign titled ‘Ghar Ghar Aik Shajar’ by planting a sapling at the ministry here.

“The purpose of this campaign is to spread public awareness of plantation. The volunteer students from the local universities will distribute plants to the people in different sectors of Islamabad to grow on their premises,” he said.

The minister said he’d selected the ministry’s premises for the campaign inauguration considering it to be his home. He said climate change was a very serious issue for Pakistan and the campaign would help create awareness among the people of their responsibilities.

The minister said the plant grown in a house was more protected that those grown on roadsides and in open grounds. “The door-to-door distribution of plants will ensure better survival of these 10,000 saplings,” he said.

The minister said climate change could be combated well if it was taken seriously at international, national and individual levels. He said under the plantation campaign, 10,000 free saplings would be distributed from door to door in Islamabad for which more than 100 students volunteered themselves.

The minister said those students were enrolled in the Quaid-i- Azam University, Islamic International University, Baharia University and National University of Science and Technology. “This campaign will last by the end of this month,” he said.

The minister said under second part of the programme, plants would be distributed to the students of Islamabad’s public sector schools to grow them at home and that a ceremony would be organised in March to recognise the efforts of such environment-loving students.
