ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court said on Thursday that the entire country seemed to be “fascinated with real estate” while hearing transporters’ petition to create additional bus stations in the capital.
As per the details, Irfan Nawaz Memon, the deputy commissioner of Islamabad, and Aamer Farooq appeared before the court, led by the Chief Justice of the IHC to hear the plea.
During the hearing, Justice Aamer commented on how the city was built without considering the infrastructure for essential public amenities like courts, schools, hospitals, and bus stops.
In response, Irfan Nawaz said that the CDA had authorized the bus stands project in 2018, but that no further progress had been made while admitting the officials’ ineptitude and carelessness.
Furthermore, Justice Aamer questioned why he (DC) did not bother to open the file after 2018.
DC Islamabad appealed to be granted 45 days to fix the matter, since there were also municipal elections on December 31.
Additionally, the Chief Justice stated that the DC must start doing his share of the work as he was the administrator and the head of the institution which was bound to offer ease to the general public.
The exorbitant rates being charged by traders on daily use commodities ,fruit ,vegetables and dairy items is much more than the actual but nobody checks. The administration needs to be woken up.
