BOONI: The Tehsil Municipal Administration (TMA) launched a beautification campaign by opening a slaughterhouse and installing streetlights in the market of Booni.
The drive was launched at a function in which tehsil Mastuj Chairman Sardar Hakeem was chief guest. Bazaar Traders Union President Muhammad Shafi and General Secretary Muhammad Zakir Zahmi appreciated the work of TMA and demanded the provincial government to provide funds to the district.
They said in the past butchers used to slaughter animals in the streets due to which stray dogs gathered in the streets and attacked people. Now that the new slaughterhouse has been opened outside Booni Bazaar, it is hoped that the bazaar would remain neat and clean.
They said due to the lack of streetlights, there was also a threat of theft and shopkeepers as well as the public were facing a lot of difficulties while walking on the road.
Rashida Bibi, who is the district president of the women wing of the PTI, appreciated the work of TMA and added that it was a long-awaited demand of the people of Booni for a proper slaughterhouse and streetlights in Booni bazaar.
