LAHORE - The Punjab government finally gave in to the Punjab governor to fulfil the requirement of Article-131 of the Constitution, which binds it to brief the governor about any matter according to his desire. A high-level team of the Punjab government, led by Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah reached the Governors House Wednesday afternoon to brief Governor Sardar Latif Khosa on different issues. Punjab Chief Secretary Nasir Mehmood Khosa, Law Secretary Abul Hassan Najmi and Higher Education Secretary Haseeb Athar accompanied him. The law minister, reportedly, assured the governor that all administrative matters of the province would be run with mutual consultations and agreement in the larger interest of the people of Punjab. A handout issued by the Governors House said the provincial law minister briefed the governor on law and order while various issues including the appointment of vice-chancellors in universities and administrative matters came under discussion. Two weeks ago, the Punjab governor desired that the officers concerned should brief him about preparedness to cope with any emergent situation arising out of expected floods, which caused much devastation last year. He wished to be briefed about law and order by the Punjab IGP, but none of the officers turned up to brief him about those issues. Khosa wrote a letter to the federal government pointing out violation of the Article-131 of the Constitution by the Punjab government; but before the Centre could initiate any action against the officers concerned, the law minister went to see the governor on Wednesday to avoid the expected constitutional battle between the two high offices in the province. It, however, could not be known if the law minister or the chief secretary gave any detailed briefing to the governor about the steps the government had taken to avert any emergent situation in the eventuality of floods. The absence of Irrigation Secretary Irfan Elahi and Provincial Disaster Management Authority DG Khalid Sher Dil from the meeting gives credence to this speculation.
