  1. Lda is probably the most corrupt organization in Pakistan, they go around demolishing and bothering small businesses while allowing illegal housing societys to operate because big money is involved.

  2. May I suggest the biggest illegal construction “ Jatti Umrah” constructed on agricultural land where construction can’t be done.
    Himat hai LDA ?
    Go for it if u have 💦 down” there”. Very easy to demolish shops of poor but salute the corrupt. Even set the building on fire to destroy the documents and records

  3. The laws are only for the poor. What about those who fled the country with billions. With situation right now in country people are suffering to hardly survive. Shame in the authorities.
