Model village in Darya Khan Flood victims decry ‘nepotism’
BHAKKAR: Flood victims have protested against the alleged nepotism during the allotment of houses and shops in the model village established in Darya Khan. They told The News that the Punjab government had spent millions of rupees on a model village established in Basti Katt located in Angra Daggar Union Council, Darya Khan.
They alleged that the revenue officers, at the behest of politicians, had given 84 houses, shops and other facilities to the people belonging to a single family. They said that people had kept their spare items, agricultural tools and chaff in the houses instead of living there.
They said the houses had all the facilities, including solar system biogas plants. They said that allottees had destroyed grassy plots. They demanded Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif and DCO Khalid Saleemi to take notice of the issue and allot the houses to the needy.
