  One-Belt One-Road will connect Asia to the West: PM Abbasi
Posted by: LRE-Azan - 04-10-2018 01:04 PM - No Replies

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that One-Belt One-Road will connect Asia to the West. In an interview with People’s Daily, the PM said that the Gwadar port, airport and road networks will give West China and Central Asian states access to warm waters. PM further remarked that CPEC will enhance Pakistan’s connectivity not only with China but with Central and South Asia. He said it will expand bilateral and regional trade, promote economic integration and foster economic development.

BEIJING: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi Monday said the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) was the most visible part of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) announced by Chinese President Xi Jinping, which had also helped overcome energy deficit in Pakistan.

"The CPEC is most visible part of BRI towards the West today, which has helped Pakistan grow. It has helped overcome the energy deficit that we have," he said in an interview with China Global Television Network (CGTN) on the sidelines of Boao Forum for Asia.

The prime minister is currently in China to attend the Boao Forum for Asia annual conference being held in the southern island province of Hainan. He said the connectivity was improving as "we are building over 1,700 kilometers of multi-lane motorway as well as special economic zones." Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said the Gawadar port was now operational and providing access for Central Asia to the sea.

It was the most efficient access and it was a positive move for both Pakistan and the whole region, he added.

While commenting on Pakistan-China relations, he said the time-tested relationship between the two countries was 70 years old.

"Over the years, both the countries started these relations with military and economic cooperation, which had grown with President Xi's Belt and Road Initiative and the CPEC, which is most visible part of it," he added.

He said with President Xi's Belt and Road Initiative in the region and as part of the push towards the West, Pakistan greatly benefited from that relationship. Prime Minister Khaqan Abbasi said Pakistan and China had a very strong bilateral relationship, which, he hoped, would grow in future.

About economy and the rupee value, he said the rupee had to find its real value. "What is happening now is a correction in the value of rupee." He said the government was making effort for the economic growth.

"We are close to five per cent growth for the last two years. We hope to achieve plus six per cent sustainable growth rate." He said whenever there was a growing economy, it had current account issues and that was what Pakistan was facing today.

"We are managing this issue and we are very positive that it will take a couple of years to come out of this issue and especially with the Yuan parity growing, it will be very positive for Pakistan." When asked why did Pakistan want to keep Chinese currency as a reserve currency in a swap of trade, he said it was very beneficial for bilateral trade, which was improving.

"Since there is pressure on dollar reserve, I think the move towards the Yuan will be a positive step for both Pakistan and China," he added.

  GIEDA had Completely Ignored the Rules in allotting Commercial & Industrial plots
Posted by: LRE-Azan - 01-03-2018 04:43 PM - No Replies

Pervasive corruption in this country has not spared even the Gwadar development project, crown jewel of the China Pakistan Economic Corridor, even though it is at the centre of national attention. According to a press statement issued the other day by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman, Justice Javed Iqbal, investigations show the Gwadar Industrial Estate Development Authority had completely ignored the rules in allotting commercial and industrial plots in the port city, distributing them among favourites and relatives with the help of facilitators (revenue authority and provincial government officials). In so doing, notes the statement, applications of eligible industrial and other investors were rejected.

Distressing as this information is, it comes as no surprise. It has been a while when press reports revealed that some 12,000 acres of state land were illegally allotted to certain individuals with the support of politically influential people and in connivance of revenue officials. Illegality of the activity was challenged in the relevant forum and the land was restored to the government. Still, some of the beneficiaries of this largesse wouldn't give up. They approached the revenue authorities and managed to grab back 3,167 acres of state land from a helpful senior member of the Revenue Board. The giveaway, once again, was challenged and suspended by the Board sitting in full strength, and later the suspension was upheld by the High Court. The affair is full of deceit and fraud. As the court remarked "nobody knows how the settled land owned by the state has been transferred to the private sector that too for peanuts". It also made the unsurprising observation that "the provincial government and the Board of Revenue cannot be absolved of their responsibility in this regard."

Someone has to pay a price for such corrupt practices; in this case, probably the entire country. For these illegal allotments can only discourage genuine investors, adversely impacting the development of various projects associated with the new port. The NAB chairman's decision to pursue the case cannot be welcomed enough. He has vowed to deal with an iron hand the corrupt, he said, are out to jeopardize economic progress of Gwadar. Hopefully, all those involved in the scam will finally be brought to account, putting a complete stop to this illegal and unfair practice. Aside from dishonest distribution of state lands, there is also the issue of land acquisitions from local people at cheap rates. Attention should be paid to it. Once the development process picks up speed, the prices will rise, causing heartburn among not only those affected in Gwadar but in all of Balochistan where a sense of deprivation is already very high. The city planners need to come up with price regulations before it is too late.

  Illegal occupation of a Vast Piece of Land in Zone-III Near to Sector D-12 of the Cap
Posted by: LRE-Azan - 11-07-2017 04:47 PM - No Replies

ISLAMABAD - The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has failed to take action against what it considers illegal occupation of a vast piece of land in Zone-III near to sector D-12 of the capital. The Supreme Court had directed the CDAto retrieve the land from illegal occupation of locals, including some influential of the capital city, who have connections with a political party.


Some days back, the officials of the Enforcement Directorate and other high officials visited the area with the purpose to initiate operation to retrieve the land but they had to face stiff resistance from the occupants, according to the CDAofficials who were part of the anti-encroachment team. An officials told The Nation on condition of not to be named that the occupants did not even allow the CDAstaff to start the operation. “They (CDA officials) were abused verbally by the locals before they were forced to pack up and leave the scene,” the official said, adding the activity was just a compromised show to register efficiency.

In August 2014, then Chairman CDA , Maroof Afzal had ordered anti-encroachment operation against the illegal structures and other encroachments in violation of CDA Zoning Regulations. Chairman CDA had said that the operation against the illegal and unauthorised farmhouses and housing societies in the area would continue, which have been established against the CDA Zoning Regulations and without the permission of CDA in the surrounding of Margalla Avenue and Shah Allah Ditta areas of Sector D-12. During the operation, the anti-encroachment team of CDA permanently closed and dismantled the unauthorised approach roads, which lead towards the illegally established housing societies and farmhouses in Pind Sangriyal, adjacent to Sector D-12. The occupants again started illegal structures, unauthorised approach roads in gross violation of Building Bylaws and Zoning Regulations. While such structures, illegally erected by the people in Zone-III are absolutely against the Zoning Regulations of CDA . CDA had then also warned the violators and encroachers against the illegal construction activities in the surroundings of Margalla Avenue and Shah Allah Ditta areas and asked them to abide by the CDA Building Bylaws and Zoning Regulations in Zone-III but all in vain. CDA had also warned the people to refrain from construction activities in Margalla Hills National Park (MHNP) as well as around Margalla Avenue and Zone-III. However, neither the violators stopped nor the CDA took any major action against them since.

In 2016, the Islamabad Citizens’ Forum had also urged the city’s managers to protect the Margalla Hills from encroachers. The forum had called the press conference in support of a CDA operation against an illegal housing society by the name of North Ridge in Shah Allah Ditta during which, the Authority claimed it retrieved 100 kanals of land. The CDA had claimed that in its operation, it had retrieved 100 kanals of forest land adjacent to D-12 from an illegal housing society. The Islamabad chapter of the Jamaat-i-Islami and some of the locals had alleged that the CDA conducted the operation because its Member (Administration) is involved in property business in the area and was forcing them to sell him their lands for a nominal price. The Member was later replaced. The JI leaders also leveled allegations against the Member (Administration) including misuse of authority and accumulation of wealth beyond unknown sources but the NAB exonerated him of all the charges. On the other hand, the stance of the CDAremained unchanged. CDA still considers the occupation by the locals and construction activity in the area as illegal and unauthorized. NAB had recommended that CDA takes immediate steps by initiating the land acquisition proceedings in Zone III to protect the Margalla Hills National Park.

According to a National Accountability Bureau report, seven illegal housing societies are operating on private land in Zone III of Margalla Hills, where housing societies are not allowed to operate. Private builders allegedly backed by some influential have started carving out plots on about 3,000 kanals of state land in the Sri Saral village falling in the National Park area on the foot of Margalla Hills. The land, a few hundred feet north of Sector D-12, was acquired by the CDA in 1969 and declared as the National Park area.

The construction activity at the national park area had started during the previous government but the civic agency could not stop it because the people involved in it were backed by influential personalities of the capital. Private developers have been bulldozing the hills in the north of D-12 and carving out plots. During the last three years, residents of the areas had filed a number of complaints with the CDAseeking action against the land mafia though the CDA failed to stop the illegal activity. It may be recalled that in July 2002, the CDA conducted an operation in Sri Saral, sector D-12, against illegal constructions that left two villagers dead and more than 60 injured.

Posted by: LRE-Azan - 11-06-2017 04:37 PM - No Replies

]ISLAMABAD: The Ministry of Housing and Works has allocated as many as 70 plots against constitutional quotas in sectors F-14 and 15 under the Federal Government Employees Housing Foundation (FGEHF), while all 46 applicants for this category have been issued consent letters.

According to an official of the ministry, the availability of balance plots would be determined as and when the exact plot positions of the scheme were conveyed to the ministry by the quarters concerned. He said the issue of allotment of plots would be decided upon receipt of final plot position after due adjustment within various quotas and with the approval of a competent authority.
