The recently constructed road between Jinnah Hospital and Karim Block will be renamed to pay tribune to the slain minister.

A senior official in the City District Government Lahore (CDGL) disclosed that Punjab Chief Minister had directed the district administration to propose names of roads or junctions which could be renamed after Khanzada.
