Islamabad: A delegation of the I-12 Action Committee led by its president Aftab Ujjain met the chairman of Capital Development Authority (CDA), Aamir Ali Ahmed, in his office and complained about the sheer negligence of the civic agency in the development of sector I-12 over the past 30 years. They also complained about the dumping site in the sector. The Chairman regretted the extremely lethargic attitude of the concerned quarters and in presence of the officials concerned assured the allottees that soon the new tender about the uplift work of the sector will be issued and the development work would restart in January 2022.
The Chairman CDA listened to the allottees in detail and assured them of every possible support to reduce their woes. While discussing the issue of the dumping of garbage in this sector, which is reported to have been the main cause of the delayed development work in the sector, the chairman CDA ordered the concerned official to remove the dump from the sector as early as possible. He also assured the delegation that just like the E-11 Sector Development Plan initiation, a meeting with the director of sector development will be held on a monthly basis to speed up the development work in the stalled sectors.
Capital Development Authority has recently invited bids from registered in Pakistan Engineering Council in category C-3 and above through daily newspapers. The first phase of the Sector I-12 Islamabad Development Plan includes the construction of the Service Road, the Construction of box culverts, and the drainage system in the sector. The I-12 sector has been one of the most ignored sectors of the civic agency in the past two to three decades. Now that the civic agency has decided to move the dumping site from I-12 to I-16 on a temporary basis before the site is permanently moved to Mandra in the outskirts of the capital city. The removal of the garbage dumping from I-12 will not only ensure the restart of development of the sector but also save the residents of the capital city from environmental pollution.
