LAHORE: Prime Minister Imran Khan will lay the foundation stone of a scheme comprising 4,000 apartments to be built under Phase-I of the LDA City Naya Pakistan Housing Project on March 12.

The PM Office has also confirmed the premier’s arrival in Lahore to the Punjab government as well as the Lahore Development Authority (LDA).

“On our request, the PM has expressed willingness to lay the foundation stone [of the project] for the construction of 4,000 apartments,” LDA Vice Chairman S M Imran said in a press release here on Wednesday.

Since the foundation stone laying ceremony would be held at Mauza Halloki, near Ring Road, the LDA has started preparations in this regard.

Besides constructing a road leading to the venue, two helipads will also be built for landing of the PM’s copter there.

The process to receive applications for the allotment of these apartments will start after the ceremony.

“The allottees will start paying the installments soon after getting possession of the apartments,” Mr Imran said.
