Villager says receiving threats over refusal to sell land.
LAHORE: The villagers are not interested in selling their land to Bahria Town and want to continue cultivation on their agricultural lands, but they are allegedly being harassed with the help of local touts and police. Various pressure tactics are allegedly being used to press and force the farmers to sell their land for the expansion of the housing society.
The Lahore Development Authority (LDA) has said that Bahria Town’s sectors D, E and F are still controversial as these are not approved by the competent authority and the people have invested money at their own risk despite public information campaign by the authority.
LDA Metropolitan Planning officers Tuesday told Daily Times that the Bahria Town administration’s representatives visited the LDA offices along with written response to the show-cause notices served on the housing society by LDA, however, the reasons given in their response were invalid and inappropriate and did not provide a justification to by-pass the rules and regulations.
