Islamabad: Capital Development Authority (CDA) chairman Noor ul Amin Mengal declared on Wednesday that a sizable budget of Rs 20 billion would be used to improve Islamabad’s rural districts.
The CDA chairman stated that he chose to pursue a public-centric strategy to address the challenges of the population in an introductory meeting with the media.
Mengal insisted that at a subsequent meeting, the Central Development Working Party (CDWP) will approve PC-1 for the improvement of rural areas. He emphasised that paving streets, building parks, and creating playgrounds will all be part of the development of rural areas.
He said that urgent measures were being taken in this regard and that the new management had taken on the enormous responsibility of fighting encroachment. In addition to beginning development work in Sector E-12, the chairman said that the CDA would transfer ownership of 4,000 plots to owners in Sector I-15.
Furthermore, he told reporters that the civic organisation would also hold the Islamabad Literary Festival from March 17 to 19 in order to breathe life into Islamabad.
According to Noor ul Amin, the management committee would be co-chaired by former principal secretary to the prime minister Fuad Hasan Fuad, former CDA chairman Kamran Lashari, and author Adeel Hashmi.
