Action against manufacturers, sellers of metal wire promised
LAHORE: The cotton industry and Water And Power Development Authority (WAPDA) have suffered due to the use of metal wire in kite-flying, said Nazim Mian Amer Mahmood on Monday.
Addressing senior officials of the city administration, Mahmood said that action would be taken against manufacturers, stockists and sellers of metal wire. District coordination officer (DCO) Khalid Sultan said that the law regarding kite-flying was comprehensive but was not being enforced properly. He said that enforcement of the law was not impossible, but municipal courts were required for this purpose.
Mahmood, also Lahore Development Authority (LDA) chairman, said that services of 1,450 temporary employees of LDA would be regularised as soon as possible. The DCO, senior officers from the Lahore Electricity Supply Corporation (LESCO) and senior officers from LDA attended the meeting. staff report
