HAFIZABAD - The inhabitants of Katchi Abadi Mohallah Islampura have protested against the inordinate delay in proprietary rights by the government.
Led by Syed Mohsin Shah, the protesters staged a sit-in in front of MC office and raised slogan against the delay in the ward of proprietary rights.
They said that they have constructed houses on land owned by the Auqaf department about forty years ago, adding that they have been promised time and again that they would be given proprietary rights but it is unfortunate that now the Auqaf Department has started issuing evacuation notices. They regretted that the situation has created disappointment among the residents and they will never allow anyone displace them from their houses. They called on the authorities to ensure issuance of proprietary rights to them without any further delay.
Special persons deserve full sympathy of the society to remove their sense of deprivation and enable them to brighten their talents and pass their lives in normal manners, District Monitoring Officer Naseem Arshad said here.
Addressing a function held in connection with International White Cane Day, she stressed the need for encouraging special persons because they have better senses, ego and positive approach. Deputy Director social welfare Muhammad Nawaz Gohar, Social Welfare Officer Maida Trimizi and representatives of different NGOs attended the function. She underscored that all and sundry should show special attitude towards special persons to win blessings of Almighty Allah.
