LAHORE - Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed of Lahore High Court on Friday again sought replies from the Punjab Chief Secretary, Inspector General of Police Punjab, Chief Traffic Officer Lahore and others on a writ petition against blockade of roads and stoppage of traffic for VVIPs movement. Earlier, the judge had directed the respondents to file their replies but no reply had been filed by any of the respondents. Now the respondents are again directed to file their replies till last week of May. A lawyer Shafqat Mehmood Chohan had moved the petition wherein he had submitted that law-enforcement agencies blocked roads during VVIPs movement that caused terrible traffic mess and problems for the commuters and common people. He said particularly children and patients faced acute problems in reaching schools or hospitals. The petitioner submitted that the government had also permanently barricaded most of the service-lanes in the City in the name of security, which was sheer violation of fundamental rights of the citizens enshrined in the Constitution. He pointed out that recently a baby was born in a rickshaw in Quetta as roads were blocked for the security reasons during President Asif Ali Zardaris visit. He said that dignitaries could not be given preference, as all were equal under the Constitution. He requested that directions should be issued to the authorities concerned to open all the road-sides at once and restrain them from blocking roads in future during VVIPs movement.
