CM Hamza orders to regulate Murree hotel rents

LAHORE – Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shehbaz on Tuesday chaired a meeting of ‘Dilkash Murree’ and ordered regulation of hotel rents during the peak season.

According to details, the CM said that the regulation of rents would benefit the tourists who wish to visit Murree during the peak season. He ordered implementation of the project at the earliest.

Hamza ordered to increase the efficiency of the Tourism Police by giving them training to handle emergency situations. Incoming traffic to Murree should be monitored through the close-circuit cameras, he ordered. He also directed to formulate a final plan to run a trial of the motorbike ambulance. The chief executive ordered the formation of a fire safety plan in case of an emergency.

He said a new communication system would be installed in Murree and all the departments had been included in this. “We plan to introduce 20 motorcycle-based ambulances in Murree to provide first aid treatment in case of any untoward situation,” he said.

Hamza ordered to formulate a policy to regulate the hotel rents in peak season to avoid any catastrophe like the one that occurred in January 2022. Over 20 people had died after being stuck in heavy snowfall and overcrowding of the city.


The Punjab government and opposition on Tuesday will hold two separate sessions of assembly once again.

According to details, the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) led government will hold its session in Iqbal Hall while the opposition’s sessions will be commenced in the Punjab Assembly. It will be a private members’ day in the Punjab Assembly session.

The opposition’s session will be chaired by Speaker Chaudhry Parvez Elahi while the government’s session will be chaired by Deputy Speaker Dost Muhammad Mazari. The agenda of the opposition session, to be commenced at 1pm, includes Punjab Free Education Amendment bill, while the government session will be focused on budget 2022-23.

The government session, commencing at 2 pm, will debate on the fiscal year 2022-23 budget for the fourth and final time. The provincial finance minister Owais Laghari will summarize the budget debate.

On June 15, the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) leader Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain advised the members of the Punjab Assembly to join proceedings at the Punjab Assembly building rather than going to Aiwan-e-Iqbal where the Punjab government has summoned a parallel session. “The MPAs should attend the proceedings at the Punjab Assembly building and safeguard their powers,” he said.
