ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Hearing a suo motu case regarding petrol pumps’ lease, Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Gulzar Ahmed questioned that how can the National Highway Authority (NHA) lease out the land to anyone if it doesn’t even own it. During the hearing today, the Supreme Court (SC) summoned details of all the constructions along the GT Road. It directed the authorities concerned to come up with details of the land leased for fuel stations, hotels and restaurants along the road. The apex court also instructed that the authorities will have to disclose when the land was leased out and under what conditions and directed the NHA chairman to appear in person at next hearing. The bench issued notices to the attorney general for Pakistan and Punjab advocate general. Justice Ijazul Ahsan remarked the NHA was given the land for constructing, fixing and expanding the road. The case was adjourned for two weeks.
