The entire nation has to participate to make the clean and green Pakistan and so the students, teaching faculty and non-teaching staff of the University of Karachi, to make the campus environment friendly and ideal example for rest of the city and country.
Everyone has to contribute to make their surrounding’s environment healthy and pollution free. This is not a responsibility of government only or any other department, each and every person has to play their role in this regard.
These views were expressed by the KU Vice Chancellor Professor Dr Khalid Mahmood Iraqi on Wednesday. He was talking to students and faculty members of the Department of Genetics after sapling a plant along with the KU Registrar Professor Dr Saleem Shahzad.

He informed them that plantation drive would continue as the regular feature in the campus activities in which every faculty and departments would play their roles so that Karachi University could positively uplift the city’s environmental conditions.
