lslamabad, the not so beautiful

Garbage littered streets, overflowing drains, slums, debris and pothole littered roads are some of the sights that welcome you to ‘Islamabad, the beautiful’. The capital city once regarded as the most beautiful city in Pakistan is now a shadow of its former self. The Capital Development Authority’s budget for the year 2014-15 stood at a record 45 billion. The Rawalpindi-Islamabad metro project also has a budget of nearly 50 billion.
