SARGODHA: The Parks and Horticulture Authority (PHA) has chalked out a comprehensive plan to beautify the environmental landscape of Sargodha. The strategy has taken ecofriendly measures into account, including plantation.

This was stated by PHA Director-General Malik Javed Naseem during a meeting in Sargodha.

He said beautification measures would bring about healthy changes, besides helping the private sector in the long run. He added PHA welcomed the provision of 13,000 plants by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) College.

He maintained the plants would be placed on the passage extending from Riding and Shooting Club to the Bypass of Chungi Number 9. Moreover, plantation would be carried out at the New Satellite Town Graveyard, Zam Zam Chowk and nearby vicinities, he said.

“The measures will significantly transform the scenery and environmental landscape of the city,” Naseem pointed out. Meanwhile, ILM chairperson Liaquat Warraich said the college would continue to provide thousands of saplings to PHA every year and that the number might be increased as per needs.

He lauded the efforts of PHA and said that the organisation had transformed the sight and scenery of the city in a very short span of time.
