LAHORE - The Lahore High Court on Monday restrained Parks and Horticulture Authority from making any kind of modification in the construction and layout of Race Course Park besides issuing contempt of court notice to Director General PHA for failing to abide by courts earlier order about opening of parks gates. Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed passed this order while hearing a petition filed by a local lawyer Shafqat Mehmood Chohan pleading that the PHA had decided to construct a mini golf course in the area of Gate No 3, which has now been closed for visitors. On Monday, Director General PHA Raheel Ahmad Siddiqui appeared before the court and told it that PHA was not going to construct a modern mini golf course at Race Course Park. The court inquired him that why gates were not opened despite courts order couple of months ago. No change was made in the lay-out of park over 25 years but what had happened then that rapid changes were being made in park that were destroying its beauty. DG could not give a satisfactory answer to the court that in return served a contempt notice to him. Petitioner Chohan argued that parking area that was located at Gate No-3 had been shifted to Gate No-1 of the park. He pointed out that the golf course was being constructed to facilitate the children of bureaucrats living in GOR-1 while a large number of visiting children were being deprived of different types of swings installed in the park. He requested the court to restrain PHA from constructing the golf club and protect beautification of the park that was a visiting place for thousands of people.
