Ebad inaugurates botanical garden at KU

Karachi, Sep 13: "The government is paying due attention to projects that help in the preservation of the nature. The centre of plant conservation will be made soon," said the Governor and Chancellor of University of Karachi, Dr Inhaul Bead Khan at the inaugural ceremony of the botanical garden, University of Karachi.

Dr Mohammad Quasar, addressing the programme, said that such a garden would prove vital to the research into the flora of Pakistan.

"This is the first institute to have such garden, only one of its kinds in Pakistan that will conduct the documented study of the collected plant species" he said.

The Vice-Chancellor (VC), in his address, thanked the governor for his support in realising the dream of this garden. He said "The relation of man and nature is an age-old one.

However, students of various institutions would be invited to observe the kind of plants Pakistan has.
