Model Town gets a makeover

A new sign board has just been installed at the entrance to Model Town. I believe Model Town was established sometime around 1925 on 1463 acres of land provided by the government.

    I must inform the viewers that it is not Amir mahmood who is developing Model Town it is The Model Town societies money which is being spent to provide more facilities to the outsiders than the residents. Please do not politicize This society by giving respect to Land Mafias like the present Nazim.

    I was shocked to hear that a gentleman had posted an email saying Mian Amir is responsible for the development of Model Town, on the contrary if u live in Model Town u would know that all the land grabbing taking place in Model Town is being done by his supporters and the most beautiful resident area of Pakistan is being converted into Katchi abadi for the Nazims financial and political gains. Would any authority take notice of this or they are also the benafactors in the destruction the most well planned residential area in asia

    I was born and raised in Model Town. As an old timer, it hurts to see this land grabbig crap that is going on. The decline of Model Town started during the Z. A.Bhutto’s Administration when The Model Town Society was dissolved and it was handed over to LDA. Things have never looked good since.
    Now that I live in the US, my heart is still in Model Town. I recall walking through, the center of Model Town (park now) to DPS, The outer Round (as we called it), was surrounded by Orange and Mango gardens outside K Block. Now unfortunately, it is the extension of Model Town. The worst thing that happened was to give Township right of way through Moodel Town which increased in manifold traffic and other related issues.
