KARACHI: Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar remarked on Friday that he has come to realise after arriving in Karachi that there is no discipline in Sindh.
While hearing a case at Karachi's registry on a petition over using the Ladies Club Larkana for commercial purposes, the chief justice observed that he may have to shift to the metropolis for six months to hear all the pending cases.
He said that even US President Donald Trump doesn't have authority to allot a Khokha (road-side cabin), but in Sindh, whoever desires allots land to people.
Advocate general Sindh informed the court that the total land area of Larkana's Jinnah Garden is 20,000 square yards and the Ladies Club is established at 3,000 square yards. He said that the National Health Centre, Press Club and government schools are located in the Jinnah Garden.
He further informed that the municipal committee of the city has given shops for rent and it had the authority to give allotment.
The chief justice remarked that parks are public property and the government cannot construct anything on it.
The court then directed the advocate general to restore the parks in their original state.
