OUR STAFF REPORTER LAHORE The Shalimar Town Town Municipal Officer Monday told the Lahore High Court bench of Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed that no food street is being set up on the green belt of Shadman instead the Scheme-II green belt is being beautified with an amount of Rs six million. The petition was filed by one Hafif Moeen Ahmad aggrieved that the food street is being developed in Wasanpura, Shadbagh, on the site of the green belt by cutting off a number of trees. Following the court direction, the TMO through affidavit informed the court that no food street is being developed on the site in question and Rs 6 million are being spent on widening the road, placing umbrellas, benches and other public facility articles. He said nothing would be done to ruin the green belt which has been envisioned as vital for the environment protection of the area. The petitioner counsel however was not satisfied with the statement and argued that green belt aims at protecting environment as well as to cater to the clean air, and recreational needs of the locals. But the respondents action will ultimately lead to the end of the green belt and the public benefits allied to it. He argued that the respondents step is a violation of the Local Government Ordinance 2001, Disposal of Land Development Regulation 1998, Environmental Law, Article 9 of the Constitution and the fundamental rights of the citizens in addition to violation of the superior court decisions. The counsel prayed for taking action against the respondents for allegedly disrespecting the law and the court decisions. Justice Azmat Saeed remarked that under the Disposal of Land Development Regulation 1998, changing the nature of a green belt or public park is an offence. He said the superior judiciary will take care of the fundamental rights of the citizens and if witness any violation, it will take action. The hearing was adjourned for one week.
