LAHORE - Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar Thursday made conditional with the court orders  all transfers and posting  made in last month, observing that “the court would analyze all these transfer and posting,”.

The top judge restrained the Punjab government from implementing the transfer and posting orders made during the last month. He passed the order while taking suo motu notice on the transfer and posting made during the last month.  “Everybody is being favoured,” the CJP remarked.  The bench asked the Punjab chief secretary to explain as to why all these transfers and postings were ordered just two day before the end of the constitutional term of the provincial government.  On it, the chief secretary replied that the government’s favourite people were appointed in the official department and therefore, they were transferred.  The court ordered all the provincial governments to submit record of all the posting and transfer made recently within a week.
