A three-member bench of the apex court, head by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, heard a petition seeking cancelation of allotment of 4000 plots to CDA employees.
In his remarks, the CJP said: “The allotment is illegal. It was national wealth but the plots were given on throwaway prices through a loot sale.”
The CDA officials contended before the court that the employees were allotted 20 percent quota under government’s land policy of 1993. To which the CJP said “no such policy exists. Show it if it’s really so,” adding that the CDA should refer the issue to the Parliament for promulgation of a new law on plots’ allotment.
The apex court ordered CDA to submit a detailed report on plots’ allotment, before adjourning the case till Jan 23.
