Fed and provinces guarantee SC won’t promote personal brand over public initiatives



Justice Irfan Saadat Khan, Justice Naeem Akhtar Afghan, and Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa made up the three-person panel that heard the matter at the highest court.

The supreme court was given assurances by the legal authorities of the federal and all four province governments that it would carry out the 2023 ruling that forbade private publicity on development projects.

Both the federal and provincial governments were summoned to provide testimonies under oath by the highest court.

All provinces in Pakistan, according to the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP), have come together to support personal exposure.

Regarding Sindh’s law enforcement figure, the court asked. As Sindh’s attorney stated to the court, “There are 80 law officers in Sindh.” “An 80-strong law enforcement battalion is present in Sindh, but Islamabad has never had a permanent law enforcement officer,” stated the CJP.

18 law officers serve in Balochistan, 40 in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and 86 in Punjab, according to information provided to the court by provincial law officers.

The top justice remarked, “The most populous province, Punjab, has 86 law enforcement officers, while Sindh has 80.”

The prosecutor for the Punjab government informed the judge that the province will reduce its bar of 86 lawyers to 66.

“40 million rupees are paid to law officers of Sindh from the pockets of the people of the province because each law officer in the province receives a salary of Rs. five lac every month,” the CJP stated.

Sindh’s law enforcement officials don’t provide the court with superior support. Despite having poor sound quality, they appear before the court via video link,” the chief judge stated.

He asked, “What is the crime of the poor people? We don’t want to get involved in government matters.”

Strong and vibrant democracy is what we want to see, according to CJP.

“What makes getting personal publicity more important than projects that serve the public interest?” he questioned. In regards to personal publicity, even ardent political rivals have reached a consensus, according to CJP.

For two weeks, the bench postponed the case’s continued hearing.

Day four of the AJK inflation protest begins as talks come to a standstill.




Following the collapse of talks between the Awami Action Committee and the AJK government on Sunday, the shutdown strike and protests in Azad Kashmir over rising flour and energy costs started their fourth day on Monday.

The ongoing shutdown and wheeljam strike would continue until their demands are fulfilled, according to the Awami Action Committee.

AAC-led march on state capital Muzaffarabad today has brought the valley to a near stop. The caravans are coming from many AJK cities, and they are headed towards Rawalakot. The march is being caused by the impasse in the negotiations.

Reportedly, the demonstrators have blocked the 40-kilometer Kohala–Muzaffarabad Road, which connects Kohala Town and Muzaffarabad, multiple times.

Traffic on main thoroughfares and roads has decreased, and large police contingents have been stationed at strategic points and roundabouts.

After fighting broke out between the police and demonstrators in Mirpur on Saturday, which left one policeman dead and numerous others injured, the AJK government dispatched Rangers.

Everything is completely suspended, including internet and cellular services, business, and education.

Under the pretext of talks, Awami Action Committee leader Sardar Umar Nazir Kashmiri has charged that the administration is using deceptive methods.

Apart from the flour subsidy, he continues, the administration will not budge on any other demand.


All parties involved have been asked by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and President Zardari to use moderation and engage in discussions to find a solution. According to both, the demonstrators in Azad Kashmir should have their legitimate demands met.

The issue in AJK will be the topic of a significant meeting that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif is calling today, Monday.

The skirmishes between the demonstrators and the AJK police caused anxiety for the premier on Sunday.

Speaking with Chaudhry Anwarul Haq, the prime minister of AJK, he said he also gave the office-bearers of the All-Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz in AJK instructions to speak with the leaders of the Awami Action Committee.

Olive Branch is offered by AJK PM.

Prime Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Chaudhry Anwarul Haq stated on Sunday that his administration was ready to lessen the burden of exorbitant grain and energy costs.

Regarding Saturday’s meetings with the demonstrators, Prime Minister Haq declared, “We are determined to implement the agreement we have reached with the Awami Action Committee.”

Politicians, according to Haq, have found solutions to issues through discussion and “we are ready to talk with the Awami Action Committee at any level and the demands related to the government of Pakistan will be raised before the federation.”

In order to ease the burden of rising flour and power prices, he also expressed a willingness to modify the development budget if needed.

The AJK prime minister stated that his government’s first priority was ensuring public safety, and he further stated that no force was applied to the demonstrators.

Sub-inspector Adnan Qureshi was killed in a confrontation with demonstrators in Mirpur, and hundreds of people attended his funeral on Monday.
