HAFIZABAD - As many as 1,600 families dwelling in 55 Katchi Abadis in the district have been given proprietary rights here at a simple but impressive ceremony held at District Complex on Saturday. Former Federal Parliamentary Secretary and PML-N President Ch Afzal Hussain Tarar was the chief guest on the occasion.

While distributing proprietary rights among the dwellers, he said that it had been proved beyond any doubt that Khadm-e-Aala Punjab had full sympathies with the poor and he had devised strategy to provide shelter to the homeless and alleviate poverty in the province. Prominent among those who were present in the ceremony included MPAs Asad Ullah Arrain, Mian Shahid Bhatti, DCO, ADC, DO (Cord) Noman Hafeez, AC Hafizabad and AC Pindi Bhattian.
