Depredation of Shalimar Zone by Dr Attaulwadood – Eagle Eye
Illegal happenings and Pakistan are going on hand in hand since its inception. There’s sadly no one who has the privilege to speak against this depredated system. Those who have spoken against it, approx. ever faced death penalty; there’s no less punishment for him. The evils have gained enough strength now that it seems almost impossible to shape corruption free Pakistan. But still in order to survive we have to hold on to hope -the hope of better future.
Lahore, the city of gardens is gradually transforming into “the city of illicit projects,” the way no one is taking the required action to eradicate or to halt the corrupt mafia.
Illegal commercial building is under construction at GT Road near National Bank Pakistan (NBP). High Level Designed Committee’s has not yet approved the map for construction. In addition to it there is neither building line nor parking space.
In the meantime, another commercial building is in construction at Shalimar Link Road, near Muhammadi Sanitary Store opposite Honda workshop, without approved map.

- Before the submission of case in family court, map was submitted to Shalimar zone. So, the question arises that when the matter was in court then how did the map submitted?

- Keeping the matter subtle the case was sent to HLDC. In documents the site was shown as an empty plot.
- Extra 10 Marla is consumed in construction with no clue of it (10 Marla) in documents.

Wake-up Call to the System
I have been trying my best to awake the system from the sound sleep, which is not everlasting. Specifically, have a look what you are doing to your motherland. Reconsider all the efforts that our ancestors made to gain this country, don’t burn the midnight oil to contaminate their efforts.
Your unctuous behavior is destroying the name of your country, its natives, its inhabitants and its intellectuals, diligent masses.
The interest of public has always remained my priority, maybe there comes a time when my writings move your mind. Nevertheless, maybe my little practices play a role in making my country a better place. – PUNA
