Imran appealed to the Federal Government not to open our Land border until and unless the target is achieved adding that the border closure are serious measure for self preservation by Countries when ever it is applied it most achieved the set target otherwise the Country would never taken serious and Government most also ensure that the gain in local Rice production are sustained.
