Ruthless deforestation continues in Chitral

31 Oct, 2018

Chitral: Use of oak trees for firewood purposes continues and with increase in population the massacre of trees for firewood is increasing at an alarming rate. According to estimates daily 10000 trees are cut in Chitral to be used as firewood and southern Chitral is worst effected. The government should provide electricity at rebated cost so that heating and cooking is done using electricity and trees are spared. The slogan of clean and green Pakistan has to be matched with practical steps  .. Courtesy Irshad Mukarar, Facebook, 31 Oct 2018.
