LAHORE - Judicial Activism Panel (JAP) has presented certain suggestions to the National Judicial (Policy Making) Committee (NJPMC) for bringing improvement in implementation of National Judicial Policy (NJP). In a meting chaired by JAP Chairman Muhammad Azhar Siddique, the participants recommended that in very district a sessions judge should be appointed, assigned only to entertain complaints against police and petitions seeking registration of cases. It would help in providing expeditious justice to people, they said, adding that the said judge should not be given any other assignment like hearing of criminal or civil cases. JAP has further recommended that in order to reduce huge backlog of cases and avoid frivolous litigation, the committee should ask the Parliament to make radical changes in criminal and civil procedural laws in line with the NJP. And in case these amended laws are violated heavy penalties should be imposed on the parties and action should be taken against the judicial officers concerned. To stop menace of hoarding, price hike and adulteration, the lawyers body has suggested that the Parliament should amend relevant laws and set exemplary punishment for the culprits. For this purpose, magistrates should be authorised for awarding punitive punishment after holding summary trials. Pursuant to NJP, all the sessions and additional sessions judges working against executive posts in the Lahore High Court should immediately be removed as had been done in other high courts, it went on to say, as under the LHC rules only ex-cadre officers could hold executive posts. 'PPP never demanded division of Punjab' PPP Central Executive Committee member and Secretary Finance Punjab Aurangzeb Burki has said that the PPP is trying its best to provide relief to the masses despite the worst economic conditions. He was talking to a delegation of PPP workers in his office here on Thursday. Burki maintained that despite the International Monetary Fund (IMF)s pressure, the government did not levy new taxes in the budget. The PPP is serving the masses according to the vision of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed-e-Jumhooriyat Benazir Bhutto, but opponents have become jealous and started criticising its leadership, he said and added millions of people would benefit from the Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP). Burki said that Punjab was the heart of the country and the PPP never demanded its division. He said terrorism was a big danger for the whole world but the PPP under the leadership of President Asif Zardari had been working to eliminate this menace with conviction and courage. Anti-Pakistan elements are conspiring against the country but the government and army have the ability to crush them. he further stated. Burki said PPP workers were united and ready to give every sacrifice for the party.
