LAHORE Lahore High Court Chief Justice Ijaz Ahmad Chaudhry on Monday dismissed a constitutional petition against the construction of overpass at Kalma Chowk. The court observed while dismissing the petition of the Lahore Conservative Society that no stay against the construction of a project is granted which is to the benefit of the general public no matter some people face problems on account of it. The court while addressing the petitioner counsel said look at the traffic load at Kalma Chowk due to which traffic remains clogged for hours but the petition seeks court order to stay the project. The petitioner counsel pleaded that Punjab government started construction of the overpass on March 8 but it did not obtain necessary approval from the Environment Protection Agency in terms of Section 12 of the Act. The petitioner also contended that designing of the project had not been completed before starting construction of the project. The court, however, did not find any merit in the petition and dismissed the same in limine.
