LAHORE: Muhammad Ali Randhawa, commissioner of Lahore, has said that there is no longer time to remove encroachments before Eid. The operation to remove encroachments in the city will so go on. Randhawa has ordered participation in the continuing operation from the Metropolitan Corporation Lahore (MCL), Lahore Development Authority (LDA), district administration, and police.
11 additional business properties have reportedly been closed during the operation, according to the most recent sources. The operation, which was carried out to rid the city of illegal structures and encroachments, has been actively monitored by the Commissioner.
Public opinion on the operation has been divided, with some applauding the government' efforts to retake public places. Others, on the other hand, have voiced worries about the effect on businesses and livelihoods. Despite the difficulties, Commissioner Randhawa is unwavering in his resolve to carry on with the operation and make sure the city is kept free from encroachments.
