Special stalls have been set up in RCB office, Shah Baloot Park, Roomi Park and Gawalmandi Park and citizens are being provided saplings free of cost. Khan said teams had been constituted to plant saplings of different kinds of fruits, flowers and shady trees at open places, and along roads and public parks to make the surroundings clean and green.
