Lahore - Local Government Dept Awaits MPA’s Schemes
In the national news page of DAWN Lahore, Wednesday, October 28, 2009 above titled news shocked me and I could not stop myself to discuss with my office colleagues and other people for comments.
Lahore city which is enjoying the world's best democracy period against the history of Pakistan due to many Marshal Laws imposed on the country. But now the Government of Pakistan is running through the big political party named Pakistan Peoples Party. I just come to the point and you can read this news which I include as following for all your ease.
LG dept awaits MPAs' schemes:
LAHORE, Oct 27: The Punjab local government department has not received any development scheme from the MPAs even after two months of the sanctioning of funds for the purpose.
Official sources said on Tuesday that the provincial finance department had two months ago transferred Rs 3 billion to the local government department on the direction of the chief minister for the development schemes by the MPA's.
But the local government department had not sent even a single scheme by any MPA to the finance department. Local government department officials said the delay was not from them. None of the MPA's had actually sent any scheme to it, they claimed.
In the light of above news we presume that, there is no need of any work in the areas of MPA's because they have no schemes for the city. Should be asked as under:-
Are all street lights working properly? Are all roads and streets well constructed and carpeted? Are all streets and roads cleaned? Are all parks and green belts green? Are all streets free from the drain water? Are all jobless persons on jobs?
Are all schools having now walls, roofs, benches, black boards and white washed classrooms? Are all citizens satisfied and happy? Unfortunately answer to all above questions is ‘No'. This is a very small list of questions.
Taking the serious view of all the conditions, MPA's are earnestly requested to go round their areas to come to know as to what works are urgently necessary to be done in their areas, and accordingly submit their suggestions to the Local Govt. Department.
For the last two months funds amounting to Rs 3 billion are waiting for the schemes of MPA's. This is not a small amount to make Lahore a good city. Please be serious and think over the request made above and take immediate steps.
