Parks & Parking Lots
Yesterday, a news report was published about City Government’s decision to convert Jehangir Park on M A Jinnah Road into a parking lot. Although I’d hate any park being converted into something else, and I don’t buy into the excuse that since the park is in a pathetic state it should be converted, but I think that particular area desperately needs a Parking lot, especially multi-storied one.
Below is the reaction of a citizen that was published in Dawn today. What do you think about it? Should the government convert parks into Parking lots? If not, then what about only those areas that are very congested, like Saddar, MA Jinnah Road, Tariq Road, etc?
