The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday issued a written verdict declaring petitions against Ravi Riverfront Urban Development (RUDA) project as maintainable.
Justice Shahid Karim issued a written judgment, comprising 11 pages, in which the court rejected a plea of the Punjab government to declare the petitions as non-maintainable. The bench declared that the high court can hear the appeals against the project.
The petitioners have also pleaded the court to declare the govt’s bid to acquire land for the project. Meanwhile, Punjab Advocate General said that River Ravi Urban Ordinance has been issued after which, the pleas cannot be heard.
