The charm of the flower-decorated bouquets has attracted everyone. Seeing that the heart is happy and the soul is satisfied, the participants took a deep interest in the flower display. Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Jahan Bakht, along with Advocate Supreme Court Naveed Akhtar, inaugurated the exhibition by cutting the ribbon.

VC Prof Dr Jahan Bakht and Advocate Naveed Akhtar, while appreciating the efforts of the Department of Horticulture, said that the growth and duration of these flowers should be increased and more research is needed on flowers.

He said that the research should focus on improving the students’ abilities for the development of the country and the nation, not just for awarding degrees. Dr Fazal Wahid, while briefing the participants, said that we are working more on these flowers. He explained to the participants about the capabilities, benefits, and types of flowers exhibited.
