LAHORE—A spokesman for the Lahore Development Authority has reassured that the buildings of all the four churches, situated along the route of Lahore Orange Line Metro Train (OLMT), were fully safe and no damage was being caused to these buildings as a result of execution of this project.
“Rumors regarding demolition of the building of churches and protests under this pretext were totally baseless and uncalled for,” the spokesman maintained. He informed that a meeting to apprise of details in this regard to the Pastors of these churches had been convened on 2nd May 2016 under the Chairmanship of Kh. Ahmad Hassan, chairman of the steering committee for Orange Line Metro Train Project.
