LAHORE The longstanding issue of parking vehicles and motorcycles outside the District and Sessions Court still remains unresolved creating problems for lawyers, litigants and court employees, TheNation has learnt. Talking to this scribe, counsels, litigants and the employees said that it was the responsibility of the government to provide a parking lot so that they could pursue their matters in courts without any fear of loss of their vehicles. They further said that no satisfactory measures had so far been taken by the authorities concerned, adding that they were unable to relax because of their vehicles and bikes being parked outside the courts or along roads. Similarly, motorcyclists were of the view that many times the indicators of their bikes were found broken due to carelessness and hurry of the people who are forced to park their bikes along roads in the courts surroundings. Likewise, vehicle owners complained that their vehicles got scratched and dented outside the courts due to unavailability of a proper parking lot. However, lawyers complained that only some judges were allowed to park their vehicles on the court premises and others had been left at the mercy of God. It is pertinent to mention here that during the regime of last Lahore Bar Association body,'Baba Ground adjacent to the district courts was available as parking lot. While the former LBA secretary was of the view that the act of parking there was stopped due to incidents of theft. When contacted incumbent LBA President Shahzad Hassan Sheikh, he said that today (Monday) a meeting of the Bar had been called to resolve the issue. He also said that a case was going on at the Lahore High Court between a varsity and the Punjab bureaucracy regarding the 'Baba Ground possession. The LBA president said that he had talked to the Punjab University vice-chancellor and the Punjab chief secretary for provision of the ground till the court decision. He added that both the parties were unanimous in this regard and soon the ground would be available for parking. However, the number of the bikes and vehicle which have so far been stolen is unknown as the police station concerned did not attend the repeated phone calls made in this connection.
