Letters have been sent from 25 government offices to remove unplanned and unauthorized installations on Court Hill to protect safety and beauty.

According to a letter issued by the Cabinet Division, in the wake of the recent construction of two buildings on Khas Khatian registered land No 1 by Chattogram District Bar Association, the Prime Minister has instructed not to construct any new building on Khas Khatian registered land No. 1 and to remove the risky buildings already constructed by Chattogram District Bar Association.

The district administration and lawyers are in conflict over the construction of two new buildings of the Bar Association.  District administration and town planners say the two proposed buildings are risky and unauthorized.

 The conflict erupted when the Chattogram District Bar Association issued a tender for the construction of two multi-storied buildings in the vacant space of Khas Khatian No. 1 in Parir Pahar using Bangabandhu's name.

 According to the Bar Association, the building was constructed with approval.  From then on, the counter-response started.  Later, 25 government departments issued several letters to take steps to remove illegal and unauthorized installations from Parir Pahar.

 Following the lawyers' call for tenders, the district administration issued warning notices in several local newspapers.  The members of the Bar Association started talking about the issue.
