Construction ban in Murree under deliberation

RAWALPINDI: The provincial government is deliberating lifting ban on construction in Murree. With the approval of all stakeholders, the government aims to reach a positive decision.

A delegation of MNAs from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) led by Sadaqat Abbasi met with Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar in Islamabad on Thursday.

The chief minister was requested by the lawmakers to lift the construction ban as it had brought a halt to construction and damaged the construction industry in Murree.

Responding to the request of PTI MNA, CM Buzdar assured that a decision would soon be reached after thorough deliberations with all the stakeholders.

The chief minister also issued direction for promotion of tourism in the Murree and KotlI Satyan region. Buzdar directed up-gradation of the recreational sites as well construction and repair of all roads leading to both areas to improve accessibility and boost tourism.

The chief minister said that all main roads and link-roads leading to the tourist sites should be repaired, constructed and widened on a permanent basis.
