Lahore Basant: Kite-flying ban reinstated [ARY News] 01 Feb, 2014
LAHORE: Punjab government has resolved to again place a ban on flying kites in Lahore owing to the reports of usage of chemical threads. Other activities of Basant Festival will take place as announced at Changa Manga forest in Lahore.Earlier this month, Punjab government had announced to hold Basant festival at Changa Manga forest in Lahore from February 21 till March 5; formal notification in this regard had already been issued.Punjab government had also assigned the task to make necessary arrangements in this regard to DCO Kasur, directing him to submit a report after making an observation of the arrangements afterwards.Authorities had been directed not to allow kite flying activities anywhere else. The government source also warned of the strict action against the culprits violating the law.Notification said that other cultural festivals will also take place during those dates.Muslim League(N) leader Hamza Shahbaz had hinted the lifting of ban on Basant during the inauguration of Punjab Youth Festival last month. Week before that, Peoples Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto had announced revival of Basant and kite flying through 'Sindh Festival'.Kite flying has been banned in the province for the past four years; the ban was mainly the result of accidents linked to the thread used for flying kites. Hundreds have died in Basant related accidents in the past decade, in the years when kite flying was allowed.
