Muscat: Pakistan's Prime Minsiter Imran Khan announced plans to build a new university after inaugurating the Spring Tree Plantation Campaign.

“The Baloki Forest Reserve and a new University in Nankana Sahib will be established and named after Baba Guru Nanak,” said PM Khan at the launch of the Spring Tree Plantation Campaign at Baloki.

He continues saying that: “Pakistan belongs to all citizens equally and we will ensure that Sikh pilgrims are facilitated for 550th anniversary of Guru Nanak.”

About 150 million trees will be planted across Pakistan in Spring 2019 Tree Plantation drive, according to the Ministry of Climate Change of Pakistan.

A campaign to plant tree saplings under the “10-billion tree tsunami” campaign in Pakistan started last year in September with Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan planting the first sapling under this initiative in Haripur, a district in Hazara, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP).
