LHC dissatisfied over Punjab govt’s reply


LAHORE:    The Lahore High Court (LHC) Wednesday expressed dissatisfaction over the Punjab government’s reply in the case pertaining to non-issuance of funds to the Lahore High Court Bar Association (LHCBA).

Lahore High Court Chief Justice Muhammad Qasim Khan said in his remarks that the government has turned people into beggars through the Ehsaas programme.
“The head of the programme clicks pictures of citizens by making them stand in queues and thinks that she has performed her duty.
“Can the poor not be helped without taking their photographs with flour bags? Does a state aid the needy in difficult circumstances in such manner? Where will those people go who do not stand in queues?”
