June 22, 2021

Prime Minister Imran Khan has said his government is striving for vertical expansion of the Federal Capital along with ring-fencing to protect green areas and address cleanliness and pollution issues created by its horizontal spread.

During his visit to New Blue Area, to inspect the ongoing construction projects, the Prime Minister said it is a tragedy that Islamabad is continuously spreading, which creates different problems of sewerage, cleanliness and pollution.

The Prime Minister said he desires regular meetings with the builders so that their issues are highlighted and addressed.

He further said that buildings could be further spread vertically through the payment of extra fees.
