It’s dense fog not smog in Federal Capital: Amin


ISLAMABAD, Jan 1 (APP): Advisor to the Prime Minister on Climate Change Malik Amin Aslam Wednesday said there was no smog in the Federal Capital rather it was dense fog which had reduced visibility in the cold weather.

There was record decline in temperature across the country as the river water in Skardu was freezing, the adviser said talking to the media here outside the Parliament House.

He said smog mostly existed during October and November, with air containing hazardous and polluted particles whereas at present there was no such situation.

To a question, Amin said the nurseries were being established under 10 Billion Tree Tsunami project as funding was released to the provinces and it would help generate millions of jobs across the country.

“Billion Tree Tsunami in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa along created 5 million jobs and 10 Billion Tree Tsunami project would help generate the decayed plantation in national parks like Changa Manga, some areas in Pattoki and other places across the country.”

Amin informed that Pakistan was the only country in the world where mangroves had increased in growth and the government would plant 1 billion more under 10 Billion Tree Tsunami project where the plantation would be kicked off in January and February season.

Responding another query, he said the country was handed over to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government in a very pathetic economic condition whereas it took over one year for the government to bring it back to normalcy.

The government was determined to boost the economy in 2020 as all economic indicators were positive, he added.
