“The prime minister is the premier of the whole country, not of one particular group. Why is he misusing the state’s resources?” Justice Qazi Faez Isa remarked while hearing a case against the Punjab government.
Dawn news reported that the court also referred the matter to Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed for constituting a bench to hear the case.
It also directed the in-charge of the convention centre to inform who paid for the expenses of the event. Notices were also issued to the attorney general, Punjab advocate general, convention centre in-charge and concerned ministries.
The judge also observed that the state property was used to organise a private event.
The court also expressed displeasure over the non-appearance of Punjab’s advocate general and directed him to assist in the next hearing.
