CJP Justice Saqib Nisar hits out at Sindh government over inefficiencies
ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar has reprimanded Sindh government over the inefficiencies.
CJP has remarked that those leaders who do not work in peoples interest, do not deserve to run the government.
This he remarked while hearing a case pertaining to lease of forest land in Sindh, on Wednesday. CJP Saqib Nisar headed a three-judge bench and it heard the case pertaining to leasing out forest land in the province.
As the proceeding underway, Sindh advocate general informed the court, “70,000 acres of land was illegally leased and the lease has still not been cancelled.”
Justice Faisal Arab replied to this, “The forest land is being allotted on the directives of the Sindh chief minister.”
Top judge then turned to the Sindh advocate general and said, “Forests are crucial for the environment. The court had issued an order on October 30 but the Sindh cabinet has still not implemented it. If you don’t want to work, then leave the post.”
“Why are those who don’t have the right to govern sitting on top posts? Those who don’t work do not deserve to run the government,” Justice Nisar added.
