I Told You So ...

Some brilliant road expansion work has been going on in Islamabad for the past many months. Thanks to Kamran Lashari's CDA, we haven't seen such rapid development in recent history of the city. That aside, although I don't want this to sound like a cliche` but the appearance of a makeshift shrine, on the turning just under the National Monument in Islamabad, is more than just a coincidence. There are actual graves, which seem to have appeared out of thin air, within the gaily colored shrine-like enclosure. The place is en route to my work and what concerns me the most is that this development is very much in the direct path of current road expansion project underway near Zero Point. These graves may also directly hinder the expansion of the Zero Point bridge itself, which is a direly needed extension to the capital's road network. I suspect Land Mafia behind the scenes. This is to urge the authorities concerned to take proper investigative action before its too late.
