SADIQABAD-The bench and bar are two wheels of a chariot as their abreast movement speed up dispensation of justice.

It was stated by RY Khan District and Sessions Judge (DSJ) Raja Arshad during an address to a reception ceremony held in his honour at bar room of Sadiqabad Tehsil Bar Association (TBA) here the other day.

He asserted that cooperation between judges and lawyers was vital to ensure swift provision of justice to the public. “We shall make all possible efforts to provide relief to the people of RY Khan district,” he reiterated. He vowed to meet the Lahore High Court (LHC) chief justice to apprise him of the problems being faced by the local lawyer community.

Additional District and Sessions Judges including Akhtar Kalyar, Jahangir Ali and Asif Sial and TBA President Jam Lal Bakhsh Valana were present on the occasion. Addressing the ceremony, TBA President Jam Lal Bakhsh Valana said that a judicial complex in Sadiqabad was constructed about six years ago at a cost of millions of rupees. “But no place could have been allotted so far for the chambers of lawyers at the judicial complex,” he regretted.
