The Pakistan Meteorological Department announced that it will begin planning for artificial rain in Lahore next month.
Chief Meteorologist Chaudhry Aslam of the Met Department claims that artificial rain is generated by spraying specific chemicals on clouds. He continued by saying that the artificial rain appears soon and rains for at least 45 minutes.
A decrease in smoke in the provincial capital is expected as a result of the artificial rain. It’s a part of the provincial government’s effort to clear the oppressive Smog.
The Chief Meteorologist recalled previous fake rain events in the nation, wherein the Pakistan Army assisted in the operation in the summer and winter of 2001 and 2002.
Chaudhry Aslam replied to certain media states by stating that artificial rain is not planned for November 28 and 29.
However, the provincial authorities have not let up in their efforts to stop vehicles that release smoke, and they even increased the fines.
Furthermore, the province’s governance has been ordered by the Lahore High Court (LHC) to declare an additional holiday for schools through the end of January 2024.
