LAHORE - Condemning lawyers attack on the office of Chief Justice of Lahore High Court Khawaja Muhammad Sharif, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sana Ullah on Monday held Federal Minister for Law Dr Babar Awan responsible for the incident, saying the government had solid evidence to prove his involvement. Replying to questions after briefing the members of Punjab Assemblys press gallery committee about agenda of the upcoming assembly session, the minister said those afraid of independence of judiciary were conspiring to set bar and bench against each other in an attempt to halt implementation of apex court verdict on the said ordinance. He called Babar Awan a 'black sheep among lawyers community, adding the 'black sheep was also giving birth to children by distributing money among the lawyers. Sana insisted that ransacking the office of Lahore High Court chief justice was a conspiracy as no such incident had ever happened in the past 63 years just over a trivial issue involving transfer of a judge. He said the government would present all proofs against Babar Awan to the leadership of the bar and bench to pass a final verdict against him. The law minister said the Punjab government would request leaders of the bar and bench to resolve the conflict, as the rift between the two would harm independence of judiciary and rule of law in the country. The minister also condemned police baton charge on lawyers, saying it was not their mandate to enter inside the court and thrash them. He said the government had ordered inquiry to probe into the incident and a senior police officer of the rank of additional IG had been tasked to look into all aspects of the issue and submit a detailed report. He said those found responsible for taking the law into their hands would be punished according to law. Replying to a question, he the said Punjab government will not levy any flood tax. To a question about PML-Qs stance on Kalabagh Dam (KBD), he said those who did not build this dam during their tenure in power were now talking of KBD. He said KBD should be constructed after consensus among the provinces, as any unilateral decision in this regard could harm the federation. Talking about agenda of assemblys Tuesday sitting, the minister said the government would amend Punjab Local Government Ordinance to delay local elections for one year. He said the words '160 days as written in the Punjab Local Government (Amendment) Ordinance, 2010 for giving a precise date for holding the elections would be substituted by the words, 365 days with effect from August 23, 2010. He said under the 18th amendment, it was responsibility of Election Commission to announce date for elections in consultation with the provinces. Since we had given an undertaking in the said ordinance that the government would announce date for fresh polls within 160 days, we have now decided to fulfil the legal requirement by substituting it with 365 days, as environment is not conducive for holding the polls, he observed. He said out of 136 adjournment motions submitted in the assembly secretariat, 68 had been circulated among the members. He said some 93 resolutions had also been submitted in the assembly. All anti-media speeches made in the previous session had been omitted from the assembly proceedings, he added.
