Who is to blame for Saeed Book Bank’s impending closure?

Reading about Saeed Book Bank’s impending collapse made me think about my last visit to the store; it took me 20 minutes just to find someone to help look for the books I wanted. Once found, it was evident from the salesperson’s disinterest that it was not by mere chance that none of them could be seen in the spacious yet dusty shop.

The help they offered was more abysmal than the look on their faces, with me having to run around two floors in confusion as the book arrangement was also haphazard. I eventually had to turn to technology and opted to use one of their self-service computers, still managing to find just one book from my list. Thinking the worst was over I approached a weirdly-placed desk to checkout. It was covered with a teetering tower of books and it was chaotic, but not in the charming way old bookshops sometimes are

CONSTRUCTION OF KORANG BRIDGE & PWD UNDERPASS

Islamabad: October 13, 2019: Capital Development Authority (CDA) has
approached the Federal Government for permission to proceed for
construction of Korang Bridge and PWD underpass at Islamabad

requested to allow the authority to proceed in the matter and
recoupment of incurred expenditure to CDA or subsequent adjustment in
CDA scope of work.

The Government had earlier approved funding through PSDP to the extent
of Rs 10, 753 million from Karal Interchange to GT Road. The PC-I for
"Development of Signal Free and Controlled access corridor of
Islamabad Expressway from Koral Interchange to GT Road was submitted

cost and scope. Planning Commission had informed that all funds
allocated in PSDP for under approval schemes were deleted during
revised budget However, considering public grievances Federal
Government has allocated Rs 500 million in the PSDP 2019-2020.

Keeping in view the miseries of the commuters, traffic congestion,
decorating condition of roads, Now CDA approached the Federal
Government to execute the work through Self Finance under already
approved PC-I with the proposals that permission to proceed in the
matter be granted and recoupment of incurred expenditure to CDA or
subsequent adjustment in CDA scope of work against above deleted
components in the under approval PSDP PC-I, be allowed. The estimated
cost of these two structures is Rs. 1.30 billion.

It is pertinent to mention here that Islamabad Expressway contributes
as the main artery of the Capital City and carrying interprovincial

interchanges, I-8 Interchange, Soan Interchange, Khana Interchange and
Koral Interchange on this portion. The remaining portion of 13 km

most horrible condition and requires immediate foremost
rehabilitation. At present, Traffic load from Karal Interchange to GT
Road has increased many folds in the recent years and adversely

Korangi Bridge would be good. It absolutely chokes the expressway traffic every day.
