Karachi, May 27, 2014 (PPI-OT): DHA is a leading Housing Authority of the country committed to provide dynamic living environment to its residents. Through the state of the art development of mostly barren land, meticulous master planning, provision of enviable civic facilities and quality living environments to its members, it has attained a status which serves as a bench mark for quality community living unmatchable to its class.
In an endeavour to continue providing quality living to its residents, DHA jealously guards its infrastructure. It has right of audience in every socio economic development project proposed to be constructed in close vicinity of its area and likely to cause adverse environmental effects.
Given illegal construction of flyover and underpass projects near Abdullah Shah Ghazi Shrine without seeking necessary prior permissions including but not limited to Environmental Impact Assessment mandatorily required under the law, infrastructure and living of DHA residents have been made vulnerable to adverse environmental effects likely to be caused from the said project.
The hapless residents of DHA, Clifton Cantonment and minorities have agitated against the flyover and underpass project because the said project is detrimental to their interest and will severely affect their lives. Since the project, is having adverse fallouts on DHA residents and would seriously affect the traffic flow on 26th Street, ‘E’ Street and the adjoining areas, as such keeping in view consistent demands of its residents, DHA took stand and by legitimate means of legal recourse to competent court of law raised its concerns and sought performance of legal duty by all concerned. The Honorable Court recognized and uphold stance of DHA.
However, some vested interests have unleashed a slanderous campaign against DHA, in print and electronic media. This is malicious, derogatory, and defamatory and is tantamount to influence proceedings of court. It is a hopeless attempt to cause damage to reputation and credibility of the organization. DHA condemns such desperate attempts and assures its residents that DHA will resist every move detrimental to the interest of its residents. DHA will always uphold the principals of truth and transparency and will continue to take measures for the welfare and well being of its residents.
