Pakistan Observer - - ECONOMY WATCH - STAFF RE­PORTER

LA­HORE—Pres­i­dent of the La­hore Cham­ber of Com­merce & In­dus­try has urged the La­hore De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (LDA) to stop the con­ver­sion plan of Kahna Kacha In­dus­trial Es­tate into res­i­den­tial colony. The LCCI Pres­i­dent Sheikh Muham­mad Arshad said that the LCCI fear has come true and thou­sands in­dus­tri­al­ists & in­dus­trial have taken to the streets and staged mas­sive protest against LDA poli­cies. It is per­ti­nent to men­tion here that hun­dreds of in­dus­tri­al­ists and work­ers on Mon­day blocked main Ferozepur Road, burnt tyres and chanted slo­gans against govern­ment for al­low­ing LDA to es­tab­lish res­i­den­tial colony at Kahna Kacha In­dus­trial Es­tate.

“Un­for­tu­nately, LDA of­fi­cials have never both­ered to take the La­hore Cham­ber of Com­merce & In­dus­try and in­dus­tri­al­ists of the area on board and put the sur­vival of hun­dreds in­dus­tri­al­ists and thou­sands in­dus­trial work­ers on stake with a one stroke of pen”, he said. He said that at present when en­tire world is talk­ing about in­dus­trial ex­pan­sion to win the global mar­ket, LDA is uti­liz­ing its all en­er­gies for dein­dus­tri­al­i­sa­tion, which would ul­ti­mately hit the na­tional econ­omy hard.
