Punjab CM's 'judicial martial law' against constitution: Awan

Express March 08, 2011

Federal Law Minister Babar Awan on Tuesday said Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has introduced the concept of “judicial marshal law” in the province, which is against Section 63-G of the constitution.

Talking to the media in Sargodha, Awan said the Pakistan Peoples Party’s (PPP) coalition government has been tolerating severe criticism adding that the federal and provincial governments were formed under the party’s reconciliation policy, which has not been done by any previous government.

The law minister said the PPP believes in empowering the provinces and that his party will continue with its reforms agenda.

To a question on his indictment in a case, Awan said he will not leave the country even if other cases are registered against him.
