Tuesday, July 30, 2013 - Islamabad : Chairman Capital Development Authority (CDA), Nadeem Hassan Asif has directed concerned formations of the authority for early completion of construction work on Bari Imam Complex and no further delay would be tolerated.

Chairman CDA, Nadeem Hassan Asif directed Engineering Wing of the authority to utilize all resources for early completion of development work on Bari Imam Complex so that shrine could be opened for devotees as soon as possible.


Chairman CDA said that remaining construction work on the shrine should be completed within the stipulated time in line with modern techniques so that the shrine could be opened for devotees before the next annual urs. He said that he will visit the shrine on regular basis and would get consistent briefs about the development work on shrine. Earlier, Chairman CDA was briefed about the development activities on the shrine. Chairman CDA was apprised that 90 percent construction work has already been completed, which includes shrine’s structure, arcade area and marble flooring, whereas concrete on minarets has also been completed.


The Urs of Bari Imam was also delaying due to non-completion of the construction work and security threats. Ali Sher, a devotee from Chakwal, told APP that due to slow pace of work, devotees, who come from across the country, face difficulties to stay in the shrine.


He said that it’s sad that we are being deprived of the Urs over some reason or the other every year. He demanded from the authority that they should arrange it at the earliest now.
