SIALKOT - Local influential people have changed the building of Government Girls Primary School Rawal, set up before the establishment of Pakistan, into cattle den.

The windows and doors have already been stolen. According to local people, they have repeatedly brought the situation into the notice of district administration of Sialkot but in vain as the district administration did nothing to retrieve the school building.

Muhammad Ishaq, former councilor, said that due to the situation, hundreds of girl students have to go to the far-off areas to get education. The parents of students urged Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, Gujranwala Division Commissioner Abdul Jabbar Shaheen and Sialkot DCO Zahid Saleem Gondal to look into the matter and ensure the early restoration of the school.

Road projects to complete soon: As many as 11 projects under the City Development Package had been completed while development of Islamia College Road, Pasrur Road and Adultgraha Road projects would be accomplished in the middle of June at cost of Rs400 million.

DCO Zahid Saleem Gondal stated this at a meeting held here to review the pace of development projects the other day. Speaking on the occasion, he said that completion of these projects will not only increase the beauty of the city but also ensure modern facilities to the citizen. Zahid Saleem claimed that different city roads had been completed with the active cooperation of Sialkot Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI). The DCO said that the business community had played an instrumental role in the face-lifting of the city. The DCO expressed hope that the business community will continue its support in completion of other projects pertaining to people’s welfare.
