Lahore, Feb 20 (www.pakdestiny.com) Shahbaz Sharif has taken on property tycoon Malik Riaz by making his new property venture controversial.
The sale of Bahria Town Lahore new housing blocks – F, C and D – has come to halt after LDA places bar on them, terming them illegal.
“People are advised not to invest in certain blocks of Bahria Town as they are not approved by LDA,” reads a LDA banner on city roads.
PMLN sources say Shahbaz Sharif’s hatred for Riaz increases after he has gifted a palatial residence to Zardari in Bahria Town Lahore.
Though Shahbaz’s son Hamza had allegedly received Rs500million from Malik Riaz to invest in his poultry business but now the PML-N leadership does not need more money from him.
“As the PMLN leadership has made enough money from metro bus project and other businesses it does not need Riaz any more,” a PPP leader comments.
Let’s see how Riaz reacts to the ban by Sharif on his certain sectors of Bahria Town Lahore. Pak Destiny
