In the smaller cities, the infrastructure for building new houses does not exist. Growing congestion in the older parts of such cities has forced people to create residential plots on a self-help basis in city suburbs. But, unfortunately, Wapda had already encroached upon such areas with their HT distribution-lines instead of erecting them along the roadside and then refusing to relocate them.
Moreover, the land surrounding these newly-built houses continues to be used for agricultural activity and no care is taken by its landowner to spare the foundations of the newly-built house while he is watering the field. This leads to water-logging that causes cracks in the newly-built house, destroying a family’s life-long savings.
The chief minister should order the DCO, Muzaffargarh, to stop agriculture land owners in the city suburbs from destroying other people’s houses by flooding them with their irrigation water.
Also, it is requested that the area extending up to 10km in all directions from district courts in all district headquarters cities should be declared protected residential areas.
