LAHORE: The Lahore High Court yesterday gave last chance to the Punjab government to submit reply to the petition seeking directions for free education at the top elite school in Pakistan, Aitchison College Lahore. Petitioner-lawyer Syed Feroze Shah Gillani submitted that it was constitutional binding and government policy to provide free education to the students but the Aitcheson College was not fulfilling this national duty.

He said that the Punjab Governor was head of this college but even then it was not providing free education which was violation of the Constitution.

After hearing arguments, Justice Shahid Waheed issued notice to the Punjab government and ordered for submission of reply till May 25.
