Typical defeatest attitude of Pakistanis demonstrated in this thread. Ignore them, Rana sahab.
I agree! :yes: WTF is wrong with you people??? Being positive isn't a sin! And just because you don't like the fact that Mushy's party lost in the election and that YOUSAF GILLANI is the Prime Minister, that doesn't mean that you guys start becoming all negative all of a sudden. Had someone said that Multan will boom under Musharraf's or Shaukat Aziz's leadership, the responses would have been a 100% different!

‘Lal Sohanra Park to be upgraded’

BAHAWALPUR, July 15: The Lal Sohanra Park will be upgraded to an international standard park to make it safe haven for wildlife and attractive for local and foreign tourists, MPA Zulfiqar Ali said while speaking at a press conference here on Tuesday.

The MPA said the step was being taken after reports emerged that the national park was being neglected and it also lacked necessary facilities for visitors and tourists.

He said immediate measures should be taken to preserve the wildlife, its breeding and promotion along with the preservation of environment.

In addition, he said the wood of Lal Sohanra forest should be utilised to set up a paper mills, as raw material was available in abundance there.

He said that during last Punjab Assembly session, he had also presented this proposal to the government, as the establishment of the paper mills would provide employment opportunities to the youth.

He said that Chief Minister (CM) Shahbaz Sharif during his recent tour to the city also wanted visiting Lal Sohanra Park but due to indisposition, he could not attend the briefing of the tourism department at the park.

The MPA said that had the CM visited the park, paper mills proposal could have been given due consideration beside other decisions to improve the park’s affairs. He hoped that during the next visit, the CM would be able to give some time to examine various proposals aimed at improving the park’s image.

MPA Ali said that since the Bahawalpur region was a wheat and cotton-growing area, an industrial zone with exclusively agro-based industrial concerns should be established here to promote agricultural industry and eliminate unemployment.

He said civic facilities in the city would be improved besides revamping the Bahawal Victoria Hospital to accommodate maximum number of patients.

He assured that the institute of neuro-sciences would be brought back to Bahawalpur from Lahore.

Rs2.15bn MDA budget approved

MULTAN, July 24: The Multan Development Authority’s governing body on Thursday approved Rs2.15 billion budget for the authority and Rs1.17 billion budget for Wasa for the fiscal year 2008-09.

The budget meeting, presided over by MDA Chairman Mian Faisal Mukhtar, decided to begin work on feasibility report for a housing project.

The MDA governing body has approved 20 per cent increase in the salaries and pensions of the authority employees and increased the advertisement amount for the authority’s director general from Rs50,000 to Rs100,000. However, the governing body refused to give concessions to 134 allottees of Fatima Jinnah Town who did not pay their three installments at a time. It allowed MDA employees to pay their amount in 16 installments for plots at the same colony.

It was decided at the meeting that the city district government would pay Rs68.7 million for sewerage, parks and gardens.

City District Nazim Mian Faisal Mukhtar said MDA and Wasa would not allow diversion of even a single penny from development funds to ward non-development projects. He said Wasa was facing a deficit of Rs110 million and the newly formed recovery wing of Wasa would fail to meet its target.

He said that according to the initial estimate Rs3 billion would be spent on the construction of northern bypass and Rs1.78 on the construction of southern bypass.

MDA Director General Tassaduq Hussain Bokhari said the Musa Pak Housing Scheme would be a joint venture of public and private sectors on an area of 300 to 1,000 acres.
