LHC issues notice to Punjab govt over waste issue in Lahore


The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Thursday issued notices to the Punjab government and other parties in a case pertaining to waste issue in the provincial capital of Punjab.
LHC Justice Shahid Karim heard the petition against garbage piles in the city and said in his remarks that the Punjab government has failed in good governance.
The plaintiff maintained in his application that Lahore became the most polluted city first, and is now also among the dirtiest. The government and the Lahore Waste Management Company (LWMC) have both failed, the claimant added.
Garbage piles are seen in underdeveloped as well as in posh areas, the petitioner said while adding that all concerned departments are not fulfilling their responsibilities.
