ISLAMABAD, Feb 06 (APP):Minister for Defence Pervez Khattak on Wednesday directed various departments to come up with serious recommendations and a comprehensive plan for the best utilization of public properties.
Chairing a meeting of the Special
Committee, constituted for the best use of public properties, he said that the government would provide guidelines and every possible support for the utilization of these properties. However, he said no excuse would be accepted for delay in this regard. He said that it was unfortunate that a large area of the land was lying without any use and no proper utilization had been found as yet.
He directed the representatives of various departments to show seriousness and come up with a sound plan. It is up to the departments and ministries concerned whether they want to use this land for commercial or residential purposes, he added. He directed that all government land occupied by any means should be identified and recovered.
