Musharraf must rear chickens, grow vegetables to escape from land norms violation rap!June 24th, 2009 - 4:37 pm ICT by ANI
Islamabad, June 24 (ANI): Former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf’s return to the helm of power in the country maybe many a mile away , but his blatant violation of the laws through which he had acquired a large piece of land at Chak Shehzad could certainly see him rearing chickens and growing vegetables in the near future.
According to the CDA bylaws governing the capital farmhouses’ scheme, Musharraf is required to bring 80 per cent of his Chak Shehzad farmhouse under intensive vegetable farming or use it for poultry production, but the former dictator has instead built a lavish bungalow on the land.
Not only this, Musharraf was given an electric connection for his farmhouse on agricultural rates, which are much lower than the domestic tariff. He, however, regularized the connection after much media interference.
Meanwhile, Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, taking a sou-motu action on Chak Shehzad electicity scam has asked the concerned authority to investigate the whole issue and report as soon as possible.
The Islamabad Electric Supply Company (Iesco), in its enquiry earlier, had found that Musharraf has been illegally using the agriculture tariff, and has sought recovery of about 400,000 rupees from him, The News reports.
The CDA bylaws, clearly mention that each farmhouse is required to bring 80 per cent of the land under intensive vegetable farming or production of Broiler 4,500 per month, and Layers 9,000 at a time for production of 5,000 eggs per day. These products are then required to be sold in the market, but Musharraf’s farm house hardly has any chickens breeding inside the campus.
If the issue gets hotter, which is supposed to be the case because of the heightened media interest in this regard, Musharraf could soon be forced to turn a part of his huge farmhouse campus into a poultry farm or a mango orchard. (ANI)
