HCJP TAKES NOTICE ON A NEWS STORY AND DIRECTS CHAIRMAN CDA TO SUBMIT REPORT WITHIN TWO WEEKS

Dated: 2-January-2014

The Hon’ble Chief Justice of Pakistan Mr. Justice Tassaduq Hussain Jillani took notice on press clipping of “Daily Dawn” dated 01-01-2014, containing the story captioned as “CDA turns scenic Margalla ugly” wherein it was stated that Margalla Hills give Islamabad its image of “the beautiful” but the city managers have been caught turning it ugly.  The news story further reported that a big CDA board on the road leading to the stinking smoking site warns the public against investing in any scheme in its “preserved forest area” of the Margalla Hills National Park. That indeed mocks at the CDA’s own illegal activity.

Taking the cognizance, the Hon’ble Chief Justice of Pakistan ordered that:

 “The Chairman CDA be directed to hold meetings with DG, Environment Protection Agency and to submit a detailed report as to;

i.   A proper long term composite solid waste management plan with an emphasize on recycling, to the extent possible;

ii.  Steps required to reverse the damage caused to subject site and to submit such report within two weeks.”
