Why did you challenge this advertisement, Justice Sultan Tanveer Ahmad asked the lawyer.

Punjab Journalist Housing Foundation is an organization working under the aegis of Information Department, Barrister Syed Ali Nauman replied.

The function of Journalist Housing Foundation is to provide free and non-profit plots for the welfare of journalists.

The quota of information department employees has also been allocated in the law of 2004, the lawyer took plea.
