ISLAMABAD: Information and Broadcasting Federal Minister Chaudhry Fawad Hussain Saturday said the present government will announce a special package for lawyers.

Talking to a delegation of Jhelum Bar Association, the federal minister said the importance of lawyers cannot be overlooked in the society and the present government will take strong measures to extend maximum facilities to them.

He stated that the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf (PTI) government was dedicated to bringing about judicial reforms and ensuring equal justice and law for all whether the person belonged to rich or poor community. He said that the PTI manifesto largely speaks of bringing a revolution for the middle class and it is only possible if the justice system works equally for all the communities.
