ISLAMABAD - The Capital Development Authority (CDA) is continuously defying orders of the Supreme Court of Pakistan regarding restoring the status of the the F-7 Park prior to the failed attempt to set up a mini golf venture. CDA defiantly pointed out that no timeline was mentioned in courts order, therefore it was up to the CDA as to when it deems fit to restore the park. The authority had earlier decided to set up a mini golf course in the park against which an appeal was made before the Supreme Court of Pakistan. The court had ordered the Authority to stop the golf course project as it was in violation of the constitution. In his judgment the Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry ordered that the park be converted back to its original shape by removing the structures made in haste by the investor. Despite a clear verdict of the apex court, CDA did not execute development work of the said park. The persistent demands of the residents of the area and severe criticism in the press could not work, too. The residents of the area staged several protest demonstrations since 2005 against the development of a mini-golf club at the site of a public park. They urged the authorities concerned to cancel the lease agreement with the developer of the mini-golf club and declare it illegal. Negligence on the part of authorities concerned, material of the said project could not be removed from the park and the said area could not be decorated with new fresh green areas, sit outs, walking and jogging tracks and other landscape features. Mustafain Kazmi, DG Civic Management and Spokesperson of CDA, when contacted, told TheNation that in its verdict the apex court had mentioned no timeline for development of the park and now it depends on the Authority when the park should be developed there. He said that whenever CDA would decide to develop park, court orders would be followed. To a query, he replied that some locals were misusing that open space so therefore earlier CDA had initiated mini golf project. To another question, he said that CDA has its own priority list and authority would decide the timeline of the development of park there. It is pertinent to mention here that apex court took suo moto action against the CDA mini golf course project in public interest.
