LAHORE - Though scarcity of resources and lack of funds have seriously hampered development works in the entire province, but it is not the case with Roshan Bheela, a small village consisting of around 200 houses and located at about 12-kilometer away from Kasur city. Majority of the development projects in the district, whether relating to the Punjab Government, District Government Kasur or Kot Radha Kishan Tehsil Municipal Administration, are heading toward this village due to one reason or the other. The insiders say that this village is seeing unprecedented development and presenting looks of a modern city due to the reason that it belongs to former Chief Secretary Punjab Javaid Mahmood. They say that the village attracted development projects not only more than other villages but also than tehsil and even district headquarter. The officials, however, say that this village is not getting undue favour and development works over there will benefit thousands of people residing in nearby villages. Javaid Mahmood lost the command of provincial bureaucracy after the incident of his official vehicle crushing to death a retired colonel in cantonment area few months. But the development projects identified during the ongoing fiscal year are in progress. Higher Education Wing of the Punjab Education Department is establishing a library at an estimated cost of Rs50 million to facilitate the residents of Roshan Bheela. The Punjab Health Department is constructing a 40-bed hospital in the village at an estimated cost of Rs102.6 million. Interestingly, even tehsil headquarter is not having such a healthcare facility. The completed development projects included two public parks, higher secondary school for boys, high school for girls, 12-km long Kasur-Roshan Bheela road and a road infrastructure to improve access with other towns and villages. The residents of the village also enjoy facilities of clean drinking water and proper sewerage. While accepting that the village got proper attention after Javaid Mahmood held the office of CS Punjab, the officials said that encroached and illegally occupied land was vacated for establishment of public parks, higher secondary school for boys and high school for girls. They said that major portion of this land was under the occupation of relatives of Javaid Mahmood but he did not intervene and given a free hand to the government officials to free the land and establish institutions to benefit residents of Roshan Bheela and surrounding villages.
