JHELUM (REPORTBEAT) –Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has said that there is a need to preserve cultural heritage for future generation of Pakistan.
While addressing a press conference after launching Al-Beruni Radius, a tourism project for the revival of heritage at Nandana fort, the premier said that tourism provides opportunities for employment for the people.
He made these remarks at the inauguration of a heritage trail at the historical Nandana Fort in Jhelum, as part of the Al-Beruni Radius Tourism Project.
“Our archaeologists did little, in fact, nothing, to preserve our heritage,” the premier said. “Even Moenjo Dero and Harappa were discovered by foreigners,” he lamented.
“The entire world initiates excavation projects but there were none initiated on our soil,” the premier maintained.
PM Imran further said that the area will witness an uplift after the inauguration of the projects, saying a lot of work is to be done in this regard.
