Peshawar: Chairman PTI Imran Khan issued a strong statement against the PMLN Government’s plan to build a new city across the Margalla Hills linked by an underground tunnel from Islamabad. He said this was a complete environmental disaster destroying the natural beauty and habitat of Islamabad and the Margalla Hills.
“This area is a conservation area of the National Park and cannot be destroyed to accommodate the greed of developers”, Khan pointed out.
He added it would also cause more traffic congestion thereby adding to the pollution do the Capital. The Chairman vowed PTI would raise this issue in the National Assembly and would demand a study on the environmental impact of this misguided project.
“We need to give priority to preserving our environment and respecting our environment preservation laws. This is our future generation’s legacy and we have a responsibility to preserve it,” Khan concluded.
