Highlighting the importance of tree plantation, the Prime Minister said that if a tree needs to be removed from somewhere, it should be safely replanted to another place.
In a separate development, PM Khan said on Wednesday that Pakistan had established its credibility as a ‘Green champion’ due to the flagship 10 Billion Tree Tsunami program.
