Lawyers show confidence in PML-Q leadership


A delegation of Lahore High Court Bar Association (LHCBA), led by its president, Abid Saqi, on Sunday called on Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) senior central leader and Deputy Prime Minister Parvez Elahi at his residence. Talking to members of the delegation, Parvez Elahi said that the role of the lawyers’ community in the strengthening of an independent judiciary and democracy had been very important. He said as the Punjab chief minister, he had established the institution of the prosecutor general for quick dispensation of justice in the province, appointed public defenders, set up consumer courts, provided free medical facilities to the lawyers’ community and established Lawyers Housing Colony for solving the residential problems of the lawyers. He said, “Our government launched and completed a large number of welfare projects for people from all walks of life including the lawyers.” LHCBA President Abid Saqi appreciated the welfare works by Parvez Elahi undertaken for well being of the lawyers’ community and pledged support for PML-Q in the upcoming elections.
