PM Imran Chairs High-Level Meeting on ‘Islamabad Master Plan’

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday chaired a high-level meeting regarding the master plan of Islamabad.

PM Imran has stressed for revisiting the master plan of Islamabad keeping in view the ground realities and increase in its population.

The premier said: “In the interim period, sub-rules should immediately be framed for the protection of the capital’s green areas and regularize the construction activities.”

PM Khan noted that work is in progress to provide better residential facilities to the dwellers of slums in Islamabad under Naya Pakistan Housing Project.

“The aim is to provide them better civic facilities and improve their standards of living,” PM Imran said.

Imran Khan regretted that problems relating to increase in population, expansion of the city and its better management were totally ignored in the past.  He said this resulted in the extinction of green areas and irregular construction.

Chairman CDA briefed the Prime Minister about the plantation campaign started in the capital.
