A petition was filed in the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday seeking halt to the demolition of the walls of Governor House, Punjab, with immediate effect, ARY News reported.
According to the petitioner, the walls of the building couldn’t be razed as the structure was historical in nature, “and it’s illegal to demolish the heritage building,’ the complainant said.
The process of demolishing the walls of the Governor’s House started on Sunday on directives of the prime minister. In the first phase, the boundary wall from the Mall side to Alhamra will be demolished.
Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar himself monitored the demolition process. The Governor’s House administration, following the instructions of the PM, started demolishing the wall which will be replaced by a metal fence.
