MULTAN: Parks and Horticulture Authority (PHA) Director General Zahid Ikram said that three parks attracted over 200,000 people during Eidul Fitr holidays. He also showed appreciation for the officials on duty. He revealed that the figures reflect the number of people that visited Shah Shams Park, Qasim Park and Jinnah Park. The numbers do not reflect the amount of people who visited other big parks such as Chamn Zaar-e-Askari and Cantonment Garden. During a visit to the marketing branch on Wednesday, the director general said that steps would be taken to improve the authority’s earnings and there would be no compromise with regard to action against defaulters. He said that the auction of publicity fee contract would be held on June 28, adding that PHA was also looking for more opportunities to increase income. Meanwhile, he also supervised an operation against defaulters during which many panaflexes and other displays were removed and taken into possession.
