ISLAMABAD, (TLTP): Three petitioners on Tuesday urged Supreme Court to revisit its order relating to removal of billboards and hoardings from Lahore.
While hearing a suo-moto notice in Lahore on October 17, a three-member bench of the Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar has issued directives to Commissioner Lahore for removal of billboards and hoardings form the public property within one and a half month. During the hearing, the Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar observed under which authority the boards were installed.
Filing review petition in the matter on Tuesday, advocate Faisal Farid Hussain submitted that a large number of people were earning bread and butter from the advertising industry of billboards and hoardings saying order of the court has affected their jobs who were working on legally approved sites.
