Pakistan Observer - - TWIN CITIES -

RAWALPINDI—Con­trary to pol­icy of the Pun­jab govern­ment, vi­o­la­tion of build­ing by­laws is be­ing com­mit­ted in dif­fer­ent lo­cal­i­ties of the city es­pe­cially in Satel­lite Town ap­par­ently in con­nivance with the Town Mu­nic­i­pal of­fi­cials and build­ing in­spec­tors.

Il­le­gal con­struc­tions of four, five and seven marla houses are ram­pant on two, four and six kanal plots, meant for sin­gle unit con­struc­tion, in blocks A,B,C,D and E, which is tan­ta­mount to sheer vi­o­la­tion of the build­ing by­laws.

Adeel Mir, a res­i­dent of E-Block, said the houses are be­ing built with­out seek­ing ap­proval of maps from the au­thor­i­ties con­cerned and now they are run­ning into hun­dreds.

An­other res­i­dent, Am­jad Ab­basi de­manded oper­a­tion against the il­le­gal con­struc­tions be­sides ini­ti­at­ing stern ac­tion against the cor­rupt el­e­ments.

When con­tacted, of­fi­cial sources in the Rawal Town Mu­nic­i­pal Ad­min­is­tra­tion said that le­gal ac­tion would be taken against the build­ing by­laws vi­o­la­tors as well as the staff found in­volved in cor­rupt prac­tices.—APP
