JHANG: The people of Tehsil Atharan Hazari here are facing problems due to shortage of development funds pledged by the Punjab government.

Atharan Hazai was upgraded to tehsil some three years ago with a promise by the government that funds would also be issued soon but the promises was reneged on.

The government has also failed to issue funds for the main buildings of Assistant Commissioner Office and for Tehsil Complex. The office of Assistant commissioner has been set up in the building of Highway Rest House while Tehsil Office has been established in the old building of District Council Dispensary. There are no facilities for the visitors in the offices while the employees have to work under open sky. Moreover, the Tehsil also lacks a hospital and girls degree college and the students of these areas are facing troubles.–Reporter
