Ashiana Housing Draw : 500 people to get homes in two months: Shahbaz
LAHORE (May 1, 2011): Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has vowed to allocate quota for labourers in the Ashiana Housing Scheme and hoped that the millions of poor people will get benefit from the project across the country in future.
Addressing the balloting ceremony of the housing scheme here on Sunday, the CM said the country didn’t belong to the privileged class but the poor and neglected people also had a right over their homeland. He said that it was unfortunate that despite the passage of 63 years, not much had been done for the poor who were the real owners of the country.
He said the country didn’t only belong to the affluent people like those living in localities like Model Town, Defence, Gulberg or a specific class of people but the poor should also be treated equally and they should also be given due recognition.
