Lahore: THE much-awaited demolition drive against illegally constructed high-rises in the provincial metropolis finally kicked off on Sunday as the Lahore Development Authority (LDA) started razing three out of 400 illegal plazas.
THE Lahore Bachao Tehrik (LBT) formed several committees to protect the environment and nature along the Lahore Canal, which is going to be disturbed by the re-launching of Lahore Development Authority (LDA) project of widening/remodelling of the Canal Bank Road recently.
A RECENT advertisement by the Lahore Development Authority regarding revival of the Widening/Remodelling of Canal Bank Road Project has caused uproar among the civil society organisations as well as the citizens at large who have started organising themselves to fight against the project.
Lahore Bachao Tehrik has flayed a move of Lahore Development Authority (LDA) to commercialise 58 more streets and roads in the provincial capital.
Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has issued directions to make the provincial metropolis free of billboards and retrieve the state land from illegal occupants for the construction of modern pavilions for providing facilities of recreation and sports to the youth.
