On the 24th of this October, Lahore High Court has dismissed the contempt plea against Punjab’s Chief Secretary. The decision has been made by Justice Ayesha A Malik who has directed both parties to resolve this matter through table talk and in a friendly environment.
LESCO needs the government land for the additional grid stations. Earlier, the court directed the Punjab Chief Secretary to talk with their officials or authorities to talk about it if they can transfer the government land to LESCO in any way.
To increase the load capacity for customers of LESCO, it was crucial to do it on an urgent basis. After some time, LESCO filed a plea against Chief Secretary that he has not moved a single inch and not initiated a formal conversation with the authorities.
According to LESCO, Punjab CS has delayed the authorities’ talk without any appropriate reason so they had to involve the court on this. But Justice Ayesha A Malik stated that contempt petition is not maintainable in this present case.
So she directed Punjab CS and LESCO lawyer to settle this matter ASAP through Dialogue Negotiation Talks.
As far as increasing demand for electricity and supply gap it is crucial for LESCO to increase the supply capacity. This could be possible if the government of Punjab takes immediate action on it and contact the Punjab CS to have a table talk.
This would be beneficial for both parties and it won’t be wrong to say that this would be instrumental for the public of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. God knows what happens next!
Because a court decision could be a more fast way to resolve this matter but the law is law and should be followed in any condition.
