LAHORE Senior Advisor to Chief Minister Sardar Zulfiqar Ali Khan Khosa has directed to all the divisional commissioners to take necessary measures for the balloting of Jinnah Abadies applications and call the meetings of district Jinnah Abadies Committees and ensure the participation of the public representatives for transparent allotment of plots. These instructions were issued by him while addressing a meeting of Provincial Supervisory Board for Jinnah Abadies here on Monday. The meeting was attended by Parliamentarians, Divisional Commissioners, Senior Member of Board of Revenue Akhlaq Ahmad Tarar and Minister for Agriculture Ahmad Ali Aulakh. Khosa said PML-N leadership had endeavoured to provide residential facilities to shelterless people and under this programme more than one lakh 5-marla residential plots would be distributed among deserving people. The meeting was told that 315361 applications for Jinnah Abadies plots had been received so far, and their scrutiny would be completed at all district headquarters at the earliest. Khosa said scrutiny process should be initiated at all districts, and DCOs should convene the meeting of District Jinnah Abadies Committees and scrutiny of application should be made in the presence of public representatives. The Assembly members pointed out that in some districts, the officials of Revenue Department had proposed encroached and disputed lands in connivance with influential people of the area and had tried to hide suitable pieces of lands for Jinnah Abadies, and the establishment of Jinnah Abadi at disputed land may be resulted in long litigation.
