A delegation of allottees led by Nawab Khattak claimed during a news conference on Thursday at the Peshawar Press Club that Regi Model Town could not be finished even after nearly 29 years.

Mr Khattak stated that the bulk of those who received plots in the town died, but their offspring did not inherit their plots. He said that the town’s Zone-I lacked essential services such as sewerage, electricity, and drinking water. Even roadwork had not been done, he added.

He claimed that the Regi Model Town was established to provide residential facilities to Peshawar’s ordinary people, but that despite the passage of over three decades, successive governments failed to pay sufficient attention to its development.

Mr Khattak claimed that the administration appeared to be more interested in establishing a new residential development than in speeding up construction on Regi Model Town, which had disappointed allottees. He claimed that families of government officials who had died in the line of duty had been visiting offices in search of plots, but that they had been unsuccessful.

Outside the press club, the allottees staged a protest and yelled demands seeking a solution to their problems. They requested that the government settle the long-standing issue so that they could obtain housing.
