Life threat


A clay oven is being run in Chenab Block, adjacent to Masjid Quba in Allama Iqbal Town, Lahore, which is an open violation of rules. Even though their gas connection was canceled by the Sui Northern, it is still open and is being run on woods as fuel now. Because of those damp woods, carbon monoxide is creating a life threat for us, the residents of the area.
We submitted an application to the health department and they assured us of an action but there has been no action since many days. There are elderly people, asthma patients and eye patients here for whom this smoke is not good at all. Whose fault is this? Will the authorities listen to us and respond to our plight?
