Religious leaders boil over poor arrangements The religious leaders have boiled over the poor arrangements on all routes of mourning processions in old walled city demanding CM Punjab Shahbaz Sharif to take notice of the situation at earliest. Custodian of Haveli Alaf Shah Syed Altaf Hussain Shah, Haveli Mian Khan Syed Abid Shamsi, Syed Zafar Askari and others showed their reservations on the pathetic routes arrangements made by City District Government Lahore (CDGL). They complained that worse sanitation, dysfunctional streetlights, broken covers of gutters, ramshackle roads and streets were hurting the sanctity of routes of Zuljinah processions. They said infrastructure on all routes in walled city was highly below par because the local religious leaders were not taken on board while finalising the arrangements in this regard. They further complained that due to lack of coordination between authority concerned and religious leaders, all license holders authorised to take out Zuljinah procession were forced to carryout mourning arrangements on self-help basis.
