Opposition express concern over Attock ADP
ATTOCK: Members of Tehsil Council Attock from opposition benches have expressed reservations about approval of Attock's Annual Development Programme (ADP) without their consent in violation of rules of business of local bodies Ordinance. In a session held here under the chairmanship of Convener Shamim Khan, the members, including Nabeela Mushtaq, Sheikh Israr and Iqbal Khan, complained that the Tehsil Municipal Administration (TMA) approved the development projects for Attock tehsil without seeking their consent. They demanded that a special session should be convened after three days to discuss the issue in detail. In response to the complaints, Tehsil Nazim Qazi Khalid Mehmood said that work orders of the uplift schemes would not be issued unless the members felt satisfied. However, he stressed that the members should trust him, claiming he would never go against their interest. The public representatives also pointed out those contracts were being awarded on 'pick and choose basis' instead of open competitions, which was again a violation of the law. They also called for shifting the taxi stand from near the Liaquat Ali Khan Hockey Stadium, as the drivers were not paying parking fee to the TMA. Some members also alleged that revenue officials (Patwaris) were illegally charging heavy fee for issuing Fard (land ownership certificate), registration of mutation, and other revenue affairs. They said the fee schedule should be displayed at the Halqa Patwar offices for the facilitation of people.
