LAHORE – People of Lahore arrange a protest on March 8 against the government’s planning for developing the city as they want government to advert to the basics of citizens not on luxuries for citizens, PakistanTribe received a protest call to be covered.

According to the details, Lahore Conservation society is planning a protest rally on Sunday, 8th of March at Gulberg, Main Boulevard at the main fountain in front of Siddique Trade Centre with a single point agenda of ‘Lahore Bachao’ (Save The Lahore).

Society urges people to take a stand, Speak up for their rights and the rights of those around them. Addressing people it said “It is your duty! Help us reclaim our city!.”

The reaction came after the government’s focus on infrastructure and roads rather than basics of people. The society believes that basics should be fulfilled first as it is about survival, later it comes to the infrastructure to be developed.

The poster of this protest call gives a message that “We need more schools and hospitals for Public not more roads to be facilitated.”

“Our tax money is being invested on roads, the roads which will cause destruction of schools, hospitals and trees, for whom the city is being developed ….? Public is suffering directly,” said a protest poster published on social media page of society.

It is worth mention here that the stages of development start from Needs, then facilities and finally luxuries.

Current government’s policies for developing the infrastructure is under great criticism of many walks of the society and people very often protest against government for such developing projects.
