New District Ravi

Punjab Board of Revenue has suggested to make a new district by adding northern part of Lahore (Shahdra Town) and some portion of Sheikhupura named as Ravi District. There has been a mix reaction around due to some part of Lahore being shifted into Ravi and some people are also not happy by loosing the identity of being a proud Lahore.

LMB has created a poll to get an opinion about the same, please participate and let everyone hear you.

    Shahdara is part of Lahore, besides we do not want to loose Jehangir and Noor Jahan to Ravi :P

    It’s not just a question of losing Jehangir and NoorJehan to another District (both are under the jurisdiction of the Archeology Department). Shahdara is miles and miles away from Sheikhupura. I can’t see the administrative advantage of the act as it would appeal most of Shahdara’s economy is either local or dependent on Lahore.
