Govt oblivious to its promises at Thokar


The government has failed to pay the due amount for the properties and hasn’t built the promised forensic laboratory at Thokar Niaz Baig as well. Malik Nazir Hussain, Faqir Hussain and Sajaad Haider said this during a press conference. They said that they were owners of 17 canals of property at Thokar Niaz Baig. They added that the government was paying them Rs 0.1 million per marla for their land, even though the real value of land was 0.9 million per marla. And they claimed that all this was due to their refusal to bribe the collector. Even the property papers have incorrect owner names, despite the fact that they had owned the property for the previous five years, they claimed.
