LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar on Saturday approved various mega projects for Lahore city worth billions of rupees, ARY News reported.

CM Buzdar also announced the construction of a flyover at Shahkam Chowk.
It may be noted that several plans for provincial capital are under consideration as Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s local leadership last week had recommended the Punjab government to divide Lahore into four districts instead of two.
The Central Punjab leadership had recommended splitting Lahore into four districts and suggested to appoint deputy commissioners in these new districts.
PTI Central Punjab President Ijaz Chaudhry tabled the proposal before the prime minister and chief minister. The local leadership had also suggested the division of hospitals on an administrative basis.
Earlier it was learnt that the Punjab government had decided to divide Lahore into two districts.
