Lahore – Since last 16 years, the traders at New LDA Awami Market, Jail Road could not get ownership rights of their shops. Property tax officials have started maltreating the traders and they also ask for bribe. Land mafia has taken over various shops.
Administrators of the market have said that the main issue of traders is getting ownership rights of their shops. These shops were located near Punjab Cardiology Hospital; in order to construct the hospital and widen the road, these shops were transferred to New LDA Awami Market.
At that time PML – N promised to provide ownership rights to the traders but no work has been done yet in this regard.
