The arrangements were underway across the district like other parts of the country to mark Independence Day in a befitting manner on August 14.
With the start of August, the measures for the celebrations of the 74th Independence Day of Pakistan have begun in every nook and corner of the city to celebrate the day with zeal and zest.
As Independence Day gets nearer, the buildings were being illuminated and a number of colourful activities have also been planned to mark this occasion with great enthusiasm.
Different public and private departments will hold special functions and activities including seminars, discussion progr-ammes, photographic exhibitions, painting, poetry, national songs and debate competitions with the focus on acknowledging the contribution of leaders of the Pakistan movement and sacrifices of national heroes.
The makers of buntings, flags, banners and badges were working round the clock to meet demand as well as supplying to other adjoining areas of the city.
A number of stalls carrying bunting, flags, badges, Azadi dresses, toys and other accessories were set up in all commercial areas and streets of the city to attract youth and children.
