R AWA L P I N D I : Rawalpindi Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion has kept quiet over en­croach­ments and il­le­gal con­struc­tion in its ju­ris­dic­tion.

A sur­vey of Sadiqabad Rawalpindi con­ducted by On­line and found that il­le­gal con­struc­tion in the area is at ram­pant un­der the pa­tron­age of cor­rupt build­ing in­spec­tors of the mu­nic­i­pal­ity.

The main road Charah of Sadiqabad sit­u­ates a pri­vate hospi­tal that has ex­tended its base­ment and built an un­der­ground pas­sage us­ing a side of the road.

The hospi­tal has il­le­gally oc­cu­pied 10 ft area of the place marked for the park­ing that re­sulted into a fre­quent traf­fic jam.

The ad­min­is­tra­tion of the pri­vate hospi­tal oc­cu­pied the spot re­served for the vis­i­tors of the pa­tients.

Sources dis­closed that the Bi­lal Hospi­tal ad­min­is­tra­tion was forced to stop il­le­gal con­struc­tion by the lo­cals three months ear­lier but in the cur­rent week con­struc­tion re­sumed rapidly.

Sources said that it was mere a tem­po­rary halt to cir­cum­vent re­sent­ment from those who suf­fer from traf­fic jam on daily ba­sis.

When on­line con­tacted Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion, none was avail­able to re­spond on the is­sue, how­ever Shafqat Raza Chief Of­fi­cer told on­line that he took charge of his of­fice two weeks ear­lier and he didn’t visit the area.

He fur­ther main­tained that no­tice to hospi­tal ad­min­is­tra­tion has been is­sued.
