The Lahore Development Authority (LDA) has launched a massive operation for removal of makeshift huts and shanties spreading over an area of more than 1,000 kanals in Johar Town near Expo Centre.
The land grabbers had established the makeshift huts as a first step towards illegal occupation on the state land. Besides these huts, other temporary housing structures are also constructed on the state land. According to the dwellers, they paid rent to the local influential people for setting up the huts.
The operation has been started on the directions of LDA DG Amna Imran and will continue today.
