My beau­ti­ful La­hore

Pakistan Observer - - OPIN­ION - WA­JEEHA AH­MAD

? One of my rel­a­tives from Karachi vis­ited La­hore few days ago. They asked me to take them out to visit beau­ti­ful and fa­mous places in La­hore. All of them were so sur­prised and happy to see the beauty and clean­li­ness of La­hore. They envy the peo­ple of La­hore, as there are piles of dirt and bro­ken roads in the most- pop­u­lated city of Pak­istan, Karachi. One of my cousins asked me that she had per­ceived dif­fer­ent pic­ture of La­hore on So­cial Me­dia and de­struc­tive im­ages ev­ery­where but what I ob­served is to­tally dif­fer­ent sight.

? Civil so­ci­ety is crit­i­cis­ing the gov­ern­ment of Pun­jab for di­min­ish­ing parks and play­grounds for the con­struc­tion of Orange Line Metro train whereas the facts tell us other­wise. Our CM is very fond of beauty in gar­dens and green­ery. PHA is do­ing won­der­ful job and made city La­hore so beau­ti­ful. La­hore is the green­est city of Pak­istan. Five more agen­cies of kind of PHA have been cre­ated to beau­tify prov­ince of Pun­jab. Crit­ics should not ig­nore all these facts and places like New Ka­reem Mar­ket Road, Rose Gar­den, Gar­den Town, New Air­port, Kalma Chowk, Flower Car­pet LBC Canal, Flower Bed Jil­lani Park, Jallo Park, Lib­erty Round­about, Mall Road dec­o­ra­tion, Main Boule­vard, Gul­berg and list goes on. Now I know why La­hore is called “City of Gar­dens”. — La­hore
