LAHORE: Senator Babar Awan said on Monday courts had never given a decision against the Takhte Lahore.
He said all stay orders were being issued in favour of the ‘Relief Brothers.’
He was speaking with the media at the Lahore High Court after appearing before a court in connection with the bail petition of Sheikh Afzal.
He said regarding a Seraiki province that a resolution had been moved in the Punjab Assembly and the Punjab government should follow the Constitution in handling it. He said there were two laws in the city one for the Cantt area and the other of the rest of the city. Awan said that Punjab’s rulers were responsible for the problems faced by its citizens. He said people of the province would vote out these rulers if they did not mend their ways. Answering a question on the situation in Karachi, he said no incident of targeted killing had occurred in the last two days and he hoped that all strife will end soon. Responding to another query about the arrest of Benazir Bhutto’s killers, he said the case was pending before the trial court.
