More police security,installation of CCTV cameras,adequate parking space and better sanitation. These were some of the proposals made by the amicus curiae,senior lawyer Atul Lakhanpal,on Tuesday for the betterment of night food street.
During the resumed hearing of a PIL arising out of a suo motu notice taken by the High Court on a news item published by an English daily,the amicus curiae submitted his detailed suggestions.
Lakhanpal referred to the night food street in Lahore,its genesis and the conditions prevailing there. In his report,he also suggested that rather than opening more night food streets anywhere else in the city,the same should be opened up near bus stops and relevant public places.
However,the senior standing counsel for the UT Administration,Sanjay Kaushal,sought time to apprise the court of the final stand of the administration with regard to reduction of price of food served at the night food street.
On the last date of hearing,the administration had submitted that talks were on to reduce the price of food at night food street. The case will now come up for resumed hearing on April 27.
