DHA City Lahore Affectees Initiate Protests Against DHA

DHA City Lahore Protests

DHA City project has proven to be a fiasco for DHA Lahore as hundreds of affectees have initiated a series of protests and rallies against the authority. After so many years of silence, the affectees have finally come out on streets to seek justice.

Brief History

DHA had launched DHA City Lahore project back in 2010. Thousands of people applied for plots and all applications were approved. After five years of the project launch, it was disclosed that a third party Globaco Private Limited (Now Orange Holdings Private Limited) had committed fraud with DHA and ran away with all the public money. DHA put restriction on all file transfers of DHA City, which added to the woes of affectees, as many affectees had paid full amount of plots from their hard earned money. DHA filed a complaint with NAB, and the case is currently under investigation.

Demand of Affectees

The core committee of DHA City Affectees is quite vocal about the issue and they demand their legitimate right to get plots. Following are the images of some banners made by the affectees:

The core committee of the affectees sought coverage of top media channels, and many tv channels including ARY and Geo News covered the protest news.

Following is the letter sent to media channels & newspapers by the Core Committee:

In response to the public protests and exclusive media coverage of the event, DHA Lahore was forced to publish a notice in the newspapers asking the affectees to stay calm and do not try to influence the ongoing case in the NAB.

Following is the response from DHA:

DHA Management seems to be annoyed by this ongoing protest by DHA City Affectees, and they consider it to be driven by design of Globaco Private Limited, rather than actual suffering of the affectees. DHA has once again put forward the whole case before general public and wants to come clean out of it.

The Affectees, who never knew Globaco Private Limited, trusted on DHA, and they paid in the name of DHA. So, DHA has to deliver to them. DHA shows itself a victim of fraud, and wants general public to wait for several more years till the whole of looted money comes back to DHA.
