Evacuate now!

Over 300 buildings in Rawal Town, particularly near Nullah Leh, have been declared dangerous and their residents have been issued final vacation notices.
According to the Rawal Town administration, the buildings were extremely dangerous and unsafe to be used as living purpose near Nullah Leh and the dwellers have been issued notices to vacate their places at the earliest.
Earlier, Rawal Town Municipal Administration ordered a survey to know the actual number of dangerous residential and commercial buildings in its jurisdiction and a report in this regard was prepared. The survey on the special instructions of Administrator Rawal Town Saif Anwar Jappa was started.
The Administrator had ordered the authorities concerned to identify buildings with weak foundations or poor architecture before the Monsoon season as such buildings might collapse due to heavy rainfall, and become dangerous for the residents.
A copy of the survey report has also been sent to the district government so that all possible measures for the protection of the human lives could be taken.
According to TMA sources, a special control room to monitor all arrangements and flood situation of Nullah Leh has also been set up which would work round the clock.
