According to news reports, the Lahore High Court (LHC) Rawalpindi bench would hear a Public Interest Lawsuit (PIL) citing the degradation of agricultural land in Rawalpindi caused by the mushrooming growth of unauthorized and illegal housing projects.
The citizen's PLI claimed that the unrestrained and illegal expansion of illegal housing schemes is endangering the sustainability and security of the food supply for millions of people. In his petition, the petitioner stated his dissatisfaction with the regulatory bodies and the concerned area's apparent passivity in halting the development of illegal housing developments on agricultural land. The LHC bench ordered the additional advocate general to submit paragraph-by-paragraph remarks and a thorough report after hearing the opening argument from the Punjab Secretary of Local Government and Community Development by February 22, 2023.
