  11. With due appologise, I personally didn’t agree with the statement of DFO Mr. Ghulam Muhammad, that the department has done lot plantation in Gojal District.
    The department has only one nursery in village Passu and in collaboration with the KVO only 500 to 1000 plantations they have done in DHIE.(KHUNJARAV)
    Remaining all plantation in Gojal Area has been done by VOs and WVOs of AKRSP right from the then GM Mr. SHOUB SULTAN KHAN. Here, I am quating the fig of plantation of a single village MOORKHOUN, as physical counted by us in year 2002 was 80,000/- Physical can chack to day with theVO of Moorkhoun.
    The Department staff on some places with in the area of NATIONAL PARK cutted existing plantations done by the seasonal pasture community-i.e. near BAARGHUN and TOOQROOQEEN( Name of places) that, I personall saw and I shared with the staff the effects but observed them not ready to listen.
    I request to DFO to arrange an intensive training of the staff and personal awareness will be a key for success.
