LAHORE - Justice Ijaz Ahmad Chaudhry of the Lahore High Court Friday issued notice for December 20 to the Punjab government and the district administration Lahore to seek their reply on a petition which questioned the restrictions and barricades erected outside Khana Farhange Iran at Jail Road. The petition was filed by Punjab Medical Centre in which it said that restrictions and blockage of passage is seriously harming the construction activity of the Centre. The authorities were repeatedly asked to remove the barricades but to no avail. The petitioner contended that the Constitution allows them right to trade and livelihood and by impeding their construction activity, the authorities have denied them their fundamental rights. In general perspective, the petitioner contended the restrictions is also causing problems to the commuters. Assistant Advocate General Punjab opposed the petition in the context that blocks have been placed for security purpose, which is the governments top priority. He mentioned about the upcoming month of Moharram and said, During these days, tight and foolproof security remains the main objective of the govt. The court asked the respondents to file reply to the petition by the said date.
