Posted on 12 months ago
LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif has said that no society can survive without justice and it is incumbent upon lawyers' community to play an effective role in provision of justice to the masses, besides ensuring predominance of law.
He said like all segments of the society, lawyers played an important role in the restoration of judiciary, therefore, a heavy responsibility rests on the shoulders of lawyers to ensure supremacy of law and the constitution and provision of justice to the common man. He assured that all legitimate problems of lawyers would be resolved, and they would be provided necessary facilities to enable them to perform their professional duties.
The Chief Minister was talking to a delegation of lawyers at his Tent Office, Minar-e-Pakistan here today. Provincial Minister for Law Rana Sanaullah Khan, Members National and Provincial Assemblies and Secretary Law were also present on the occasion.
Addressing the lawyers, Shahbaz Sharif said that the people have great expectations from the lawyers' community, who will have to play similar role with zeal and dedication for provision of justice to the people as they had played their effective role during the restoration of judiciary.
He said heinous conspiracy hatched against judiciary has been exposed and, God forbid, had this conspiracy succeeded, the last hope of justice for the masses would have been extinguished. Commenting upon the energy crisis, the Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif said that painful loadshedding has made the life of the common man, from Peshawar to Karachi, miserable, and the poor have been forced to starve, as they have been deprived of their livelihood.
The Chief Minister said injustice is being meted out to Punjab with regard to loadshedding, and, in order to protest against this unfairness, he has set up his office at Minar-e-Pakistan as a mark of our strong protest and expressing solidarity with the people.
He said Pakistan has full potential to generate electricity according to demand, but, due to corruption and mismanagement of rulers, the country has been plunged into darkness. He said had the rulers of Islamabad, instead of looting the resources of the country, concentrated upon installing electricity projects, the nation would not have to face torturous loadshedding today.
The Chief Minister said that unjust and discriminatory attitude against Punjab with regard to electricity loadshedding would not be tolerated. He asserted that rulers will have to ensure implementation of decision of uniform loadshedding throughout the country.
He said Pakistan Muslim League-N does not believe in provincial prejudice and it is clear proof of this fact that Punjab had foregone rupees 11 billion of its own portion of money for the acceptance of NFC Award in order to strengthen national unity and solidarity.
Addressing the lawyers, Provincial Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said that today is an era of information technology, and our future is also linked with it.
