500 Ashiyana houses will complete by next month: CM

Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif has said that housing schemes with modern facilities have been launched for the poor for the first time in the 63-year history of the country and the credit for launching Aashiyana Housing Project goes to PML-N. He was addressing a meeting held with regard to the housing project on Saturday. Shahbaz said that besides Lahore, work on Aashiyana housing schemes in Sargodha, Sahiwal, Faisalabad and Jehlum was progressing speedily and these schemes would start in 16 districts of the province during the next fiscal year.
