Gujranwala/Bahawalpur-Despite tall claims made by PTI regime, no progress has been made in respect of setting up any housing scheme under ‘Naya Pakistan Housing Project’; in Gujranwala district, causing displeasure and anxiety among citizen specially those who have got themselves registered for new houses under the project announced by the government.

It has been learnt that PTI government had announced two housing schemes in Gujranwala under the ‘Naya Pakistan Housing Project’; and provincial Housing Minister Mehmoodur Rashid had also visited the proposed sites of these housing schemes including Pipliwala and Maafiwala. The PTI government had announced that citizens will be provided affordable newly-constructed houses under these schemes and needy persons will also be facilitated with loans to be given by House Building Finance Corporation. The housing and physical planning department has also forwarded a complete plan for these housing schemes to the higher authorities but, despite passing one and a half years no progress in this regard has been witnessed which is raising questions about fulfilling of the PM’s announced promises and putting question mark over tall claims of the PTI government.
