‘The developers of illegal companies will be penalized’
LAHORE: Punjab Minister of Law and Cooperatives Raja Basharat said those who have developed illegal housing companies across the province will face punishment and directive from Prime Minister Imran Khan as savings protection would be guaranteed to the poor.
He said this on Tuesday while chairing a meeting of the National Coordination Committee for Building, Construction and Development. The committee considered an action plan to launch an offensive against illegal housing companies in the province. Raja Basharat said that decades-old illegal societies had not been regularized so far and no action had been taken against anyone while savings of millions of people had sunk into these societies. He said that the committee would determine the causes of illegal societies, private and government officials involved therein.
