LAHORE - The LDA has launched crackdown against illegally constructed marriage halls during the grand anti-encroachment drive going on over the last three weeks in the City. Staff of the town planning wing of Lahore Development Authority partially demolished a kitchen as well as a storeroom that had been constructed by the management of Al-Quraish Marriage Hall by illegally occupying a public passage at College Road, Township on Wednesday. The marriage hall administration presented an affidavit and assured for demolishing the remaining structure by Thursday evening. Meanwhile LDA continued its drive against encroachments on Moulana Shoukat Ali Road and Faisal Town for the third consecutive day on Wednesday and demolished 55 platforms that had been constructed in front of showrooms and offices in contravention of building regulations in the area. The LDA staff also removed scores of other structures during the joint operation by the officials of Estate Management Directorate, Town Planning Wing of LDA and Water and Sanitation Agency. All these encroachments were causing impediments in movement by pedestrians, flow of traffic as well as quick disposal of storm water from the market. LDA has urged residents of its schemes' area for voluntarily eliminating all the encroachments without further delay, failing which they will have to bear the demolition charges as well. The encroachers will also be dealt with under sections 33, 34 and 40 of LDA Act 1975. Supremacy of parliament still a dream: 'N' PML-N leader Sajjad Hussain Chheena alleged that all powers had been vested in one man in the country. While talking to PML-N workers here on Wednesday, he said, "To PML-N, all the pledges made with reference to the charter of democracy are of paramount importance." But it was a matter of regret that these promises had not been delivered, he added. "Charter of democracy is being seen nowhere now," he said. Neither the judges were restored, nor any serious effort was made to annul the 17th amendment and nor the dream of making the parliament supreme had come true, he deplored. The time for reinstatement of judges within 24 hours had elapsed and the nation was still looking forward to the fulfillment of promise of restoration of judges, he added.
