At the opening ceremony for the project to remodel Kalma Chowk in the Central Business District (CBD), he said that the goal of the division is to improve service delivery in the city. He said that the division is part of a plan by the Punjab government to give residents better services and build up their abilities. He said that the project would be given official approval in the next few days, after surveys and boundary issues were taken care of. He also said that work would start on a highway that would go from Kasur to Rahim Yar Khan (RYK), going through Okara and other big cities.
It’s important to remember that Lahore was once supposed to have two different parts: Lahore City and Sadar. The Sadar District was made up of Ferozewala, Harbanspura, and Shalimar. The Lahore City District was made up of Model Town, Raiwind, Lahore City, Thokar Niaz Baig, and Kahna.
