  • Islamabad Town Planning has been subordinated to Interior Ministry or He has just decided to take over. After, no body knows whose job is what in our Govt ???

  • sheikh Rashid sahib should also come and check Golra E/11….it is mocking CDA for all the development planned for other sectors.

  • CDA is active only in announcing Sectors thereafter their development is so slow that it becomes a “dada pota show” that one can hardly be benefited in his life time as happening in I/16 sector. I happened to visit this sector 2 years back after almost 10 years of purchase of plot in ballet’ there was no road maintenance, CDA was making money by allowing their loved ones to do cultivation on sold plots instead of taking care of plots which resulted in depletiont of plots value drastically and no high official has bothered to take notice of illegal practices of CDA staff.
