Islamabad:    (Parliament Times)   To augment Pakistan’s locust
control efforts, Turkish government has offered its expertise to the Government
of Pakistan. In this regard, on the special instructions of Pakistan
Government, a PAF C-130 aircraft arrived at Adana, Turkey to airlift purpose
built Piper Brave spray aircraft from the brotherly country. The aircraft,
along with four crew members would be landing in Pakistan today, where it would
be assembled before its departure for the pest infected areas in the country.
This aircraft would be used to fight the locust onslaught on various crops and
cultivable lands across the country, especially Sindh and Punjab. Turkey and
Pakistan are all weather friends and this gesture would help improve a
comprehensive pest control system to overcome the locust plague. PAF transport
fleet has a rich history of serving the nation in various natural calamities
and it has been in the forefront of providing air transport to the relief
efforts in the country.
