A new food street on Fort Road, Lahore near Badshahi Mosque was formally opened by Punjab Government on 21st January, 2012 (Saturday). Different food items shops and stall are present at the food street and heritage of Shahi style has also been maintained in the new food street.
A man who visited Food Street in Lahore said that this food street is very beautiful and attracting for tourist from all over the world like Port Grand in Karachi. He also added that the thing which is worrying is that this PML-N led Punjab Government demolished old Gawalmandi Food Street of Pervaiz Ilahi and made a new one only so that Shahbaz Sharif could say this is his food street. This is a big waste of tax!!!
