Festival to be celebrated in second week of February

Punjab Information Minister Fayazul Hasan Chohan has confirmed that basant will be celebrated in Lahore. However, celebrations should remain within the prescribed rules and regulations of kite flying for public safety.

It will be celebrated in the second week of February, said Chohan while addressing the media on Tuesday.

There was a ban on kite flying during both tenures of Shehbaz Sharif as Punjab chief minister.

Responding to a question on whether kite flying will be allowed during the basant celebration, Chohan commented Supreme Court’s decision on the matter was available which stated that the festival should be celebrated within the rules and regulations.

The committee will define the negative aspects of basant and deliberate on how to recover, overcome and manage them. After the committee prepares its report, it will be submitted to the CM for implementation in the relevant departments.

    Please do something g constructive. People here in Pakistan do not follow rules and regulations despite of having cameras on signals we still see thousands of people violating the traffic laws what have the government done for them and what can they do about the basant and keep the city and its people safe. Please stop this rubbish and don’t become an example of a government who allowed bloodshed.

    Great news!

    This festival can prove a fantastic opportunity to portray country’s soft image in the eyes of world.

    The economy will get a boost and the people will benefit to celebrate in a socialize manner.

    Of course, safety and security regulations should be in place by local authrities with zero tolerance towards any violation.
