This was a long overdue action that no one in CDA dared to take. The car showrooms in all commercial areas of Islamabad have occupied parking spaces for shoppers and ordinary citizens visiting commercial markets. This encroachment by car showrooms in all markets of Islamabad is a serious violation that must be permanently stopped.
