ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled hearing regarding the Bani Gala encroachment case.
The ruling heard by Justice Umar Ata Bandial ordered that garbage should be removed from different sites in Islamabad on an emergency basis.
Umar Ata Bandial ordered the Capital Development Authority (CDA) chairperson and mayor to submit progress reports in a month.
According to Umar Ata Bandial, the dumping site was shown only in documents. The government needed to come up with cheap and effective solutions to solve different problems in the city.
On 4th April, the top court came down hard on the CDA chairperson over Islamabad’s sanitation situation. The bench remarked that Islamabad has become dirtier than Karachi or Lahore.
Justice Gulzar Ahmed said, “The CDA has turned the Rawal Dam into a gutter. Islamabad has grown dirtier than Karachi and Lahore, the civic agency is exclusively concerned with recreational points for the elite.”
According to the audit report for the 2018-19 fiscal year, the Capital Development Authority did not recover Rs640 million in outstanding property taxes.
Recently, in mid-June, the geological survey of Pakistan (GSP) has demarcated 725 acres of land in Bani Gala for the construction of a zoological and botanical (Z&B) garden.
