Multan: According to reports published on Tuesday, the Punjab government has planned to turn Gishkori Nashaib – a village located on the left bank of the River Indus in Layyah district – into a model village at a cost of PKR 160 million (November 23).
Several development schemes involving roads, community hospitals, electricity, and other facilities will be provided under the provincial chief minister’s District Development Programme, according to Layyah Deputy Commissioner (DC) Azfar Zia, who spoke at the inauguration ceremony of the model village.
The settlement, which is encircled by a river offshore, will also get a bridge, according to the facts. For this reason, the district administration has sent a plea to the Punjab Planning and Development Department.
Furthermore, the deputy commissioner noted that residents must travel more than 100 kilometres every day to reach the opposite side of the river, which costs them a lot of money and time.
Furthermore, DC Zia revealed that PRK 160 million has been guaranteed for the village’s uplift package. Under the proposed development programme, it was also reported that over 10,000 individuals will gain access to health and clean drinking water.
