LAHORE - The CM Secretariats special cell constituted last month with much funfair to do away with illegal occupation on state lands is yet to start its genuine operation due to lukewarm bureaucratic response. CM Punjabs Personal Staff Officer Khawaja Imran Raza had ordered LDA, PHA and Revenue Department to conduct the detailed survey of illegal occupations on state lands and submit the comprehensive report within 7 days. However, department concerned failed to fulfil the assignment showing their traditional lethargic attitude that has become trademark of each department in the province. On the day of announcement of special cell against land grabbers, CM Punjab Shahbaz Sharif had warned of taking strict action if authorities concerned failed to perform up to mark. It is regretful that despite facing go-slow policy by officials of LDA, PHA and Revenue Department, CM Secretariat remained unmoved When the embarrassing situation was brought into the notice of high ups, LDA Director Estate Management II Rana Usman has issued a circular to Chief Metropolitan Planner, Director Estate Management I, Director Enforcement, Director Land Development I, II, III, IV, Senior Officer Enforcement I, Estate Officer Enforcement II directing them to finalise the survey against illegal occupation on state land at earliest. He further ordered them that it was highly urgent and mandatory task and no laxity would be tolerated. Well-placed sources revealed that Punjab govt had been collecting maximum information regarding pending cases in different courts against illegal occupation before firming up final strategy action against land grabbers. All secretaries and director general of different department had been ordered to provide details of all cases to get them disposed of as soon as possible, sources disclosed. Sources said that government had also planned to launch public awareness drive to sensitise the people about the action being taken against the squatters. Earlier, Commissioner Khusru Pervez has directed the official concerned in Lahore, Sheikhupura, Nankana and Qasur to designate special survey teams to submit detailed data about occupied govt plots and lands.
