On the orders of the Ombudsman Punjab Maj (r) Azam Suleman Khan, the local government and community development department has prepared a development scheme of about 148 million rupees to lay a new sewerage line in the GT Road area of Lahore from Jalo Morr to Wara Gujran to improve the environmental and public health.

The project would be completed in the current fiscal year. A letter has also been sent to the revenue department for a suitable piece of land to construct a disposal station. This action has been taken on the applica-tion of one Usman Gujjar of Wara Gujran who complained to the ombudsman’s office that locals are suffering from diseases and the area has turned into a pond of dirty water due to a lack of drainage system.

In a statement issued on Sunday, the spokesman informed that the action taken on several public complaints submitted to regional ombudsman offices has resulted in the repair and rehabilitation of public passages in the areas of tehsil Pind Dadan Khan, Main Bazar of tehsil Gujar Khan, Sahiwal, Attock and Okara districts after necessary repairs at a cost of Rs.9,214,029. This has alleviated the diffi-culties of the locals.

In a related development, the spokesman stated that the registration of a private school in Minchinabad tehsil of Bahawalnagar has been cancelled following the orders issued by the Office of the Ombudsman Punjab on the complaint of Zulfiqar Ali of Minchanabad who requested to take action against the school teachers involved in corporal punishment of students.

A letter has also been sent to the competent author-ity for departmental action against Shahida Hafeez, CEO of district education authority Bahawalnagar under the PEEDA Act, 2006 for non-compliance with notices, concluded the spokesman.
