KARACHI: Tree plantation campaign will start in District Central on Saturday.
DMC Central Chairman, Rehan Hashmi, along with Additional Director (Parks) Sharif Khan and other municipal officers, planted a sapling to kick off the campaign at a ground near APWA Girls College, Karimabad in Liaquatabad Zone.
At this moment, Hashmi said that plantation during rainy season would help the plants grow sooner. The matter that counts most in growing plants is the looking after and taking care of them after plantation. He added that in DMC Central, thousands of liters of treated water was being supplied to keep the plants green on daily basis.
DMC Central consists of a huge population of over two million, if only one person from a house plants one plant, it will help in growth of greenery and pleasant atmosphere in the city. He urged people of DMC central to keep a check and look after the trees.
On the other hand, storm-water drains cleaning is also going on, making the city cleaner. Hashmi requested the residents not to throw garbage in rain drains and put it at the right place.
