Parvez Elahi urges Punjab govt to release funds for lawyers

Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Parvez Elahi has urged the Punjab government to immediately release funds allocated in the budget for solution of the lawyers’ problems.

In a statement issued here on Friday, Parvez Elahi was of the view that delay regarding releasing of funds will be of no benefit for the lawyers.

He said that the entire world is presently a victim of pandemic disease, every segment in Pakistan is suffering from financial difficulties, Punjab government is helping white collared people under Ehsas Programme but the lawyers, who are a backbone in the country, are deprived so far.

Ch Parvez Elahi said that the summary prepared for funds for the lawyers should be approved forthwith because the lawyers can neither do any business nor any job, the government is duty-bound to provide every possible help to the lawyers' community in this difficult time.
