“Change of Plans” in Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme

News by:

ISLAMABAD – Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme was one of the prime election promises by Imran Khan before the 2018 General Elections. Following the PTI’s raise to power, Prime Minister Imran Khan announced the Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme as one of the first things after he became Prime Minister.

The opposition specially PML-N was really sceptical of the Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme saying that it is a huge pandora box of corruption that will eventually unravel itself and seems like issues have been starting to come out.

According to details, Faisalabad has been opted out from the list of cities where Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme was to be launched in the first stage. Sukkhar, Quetta, Gilgit, Islamabad and Faisalabad were the cities that were included in the first stage of the project but now Faisalabad is been opted out of the first stage. Interestingly, more than 80,000 forms for houses were submitted from Faisalabad. Now, not surprisingly, people are suspicious and enraged due to the decision.

The reason of Faisalabad not making the final list is that there hasn’t been any place located in Faisalabad to start the Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme. Faisalabad has been opted out from the list of cities where Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme was to be launched in the first stage.
