LAHORE: Prime Minister Imran Khan will arrive in Lahore to lay the foundation stone of the old urban development project along the Ravi River today.
Punjab government is all set to revive an old urban development project on the riverfront of River Ravi. Sprawling over hundreds of acres, this ambitious scheme will have a number of residential and commercial zones besides a central business district.
According to details, during his day-long visit, the prime minister will also hold meetings with Chief Minister Punjab Usman Buzdar and Governor Punjab Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar.
Last month, the prime minister visited Lahore to attend the launching ceremony of an international brand. He also planted a tree under the monsoon tree-planting campaign.
Moreover, the prime minister had announced to observe Tiger Force Day on 9th August across the country. He said that he himself will become a part of the tree planting campaigns. “Ten billion trees will be planted by 2023 in Pakistan,” he added.
He said that elected representatives, chief ministers, and ministers will also participate in the plantation campaign. The premier said that environmental pollution is badly affecting our country and every citizen should participate in a plantation campaign.
“Pakistan is one of the ten countries that are vulnerable to global warming,” he maintained. “Climate change and pollution are affecting the health of people,” the prime minister said.
