“ our relatives and friends mock us with bits of sneering remarks “ how owners are you of a plot that you can not own it even after having been dubbed as owner of it in the documents as you can not raise a shelter home over it to keep your outward prestige and dignity from being exposed to people. You say you are possessing a gem priced plot but you are staying in a cheap rented shanty, said a government employee.
A grey haired elderly man came running to us and started speaking out with giving no space to any pause” sir I am a retired government employee.

The sector was opened during PML-Q government and its contract was awarded to NC and the contract was further sub let by NC to a private construction company. During PML-N regime the NC was expelled and sub let contractor was made main contractor. Additional amount was charged after review and BUP charges were recovered at enhanced rate. Development charges were also collected. But development process of this sector has not been started so far. Some allottees were given possession but they were not allowed to construct homes. Streets have been built partly in some areas where process of cutting of land has been completed. Mettled roads have not been built. Water, electricity and gas facilities have not been provided, a group of allottees looked at us with eyes overbrimming with agony and distress.
The allottees particularly retired government employees have appealed to Prime Minister Imran Khan to look into the matter personally, order immediate inquiry into inordinate delay in development work besides launching punitive action against the responsible persons.
