LAHORE - Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said on Tuesday that the Constitution should be suitably amended so as to provide for debating the conduct of judges and holders of other public offices in the Parliament and provincial assemblies. The minister stated this on Punjab Assembly floor while responding to a point of order raised by PML-N MPA from Sheikhupura, Ashraf Rasool who criticised the alleged favour given to the daughter of Chief Justice of Pakistan Abdul Hameed Dogar with respect to awarding her extra marks in the FSc examination by the education board concerned. The law minister, conceding the fact that there was no provision in the Constitution at the moment to discuss in the assemblies the conduct of judges and holders of important public offices, asserted that a provision should be made in the Constitution to do so. "We think that Parliament should legislate on the issue, as the rulers and holders of important public offices should not enjoy such a privilege", he maintained, stressing that it was imperative that all details regarding personal lives of such persons should be displayed at road crossings for information of general public. He suggested that relevant rules may be amended to allow debate in assemblies on demeanour of holders of public offices. The minister also lauded the role of print media in breaking stories about the conduct of persons holding important offices. Earlier, Pir Ashraf Rasool of PML-N, who raised the issue on the assembly floor immediately after initiation of House proceedings, observed that it was highly unfair that daughter of what he called "so-called chief justice" has been given such a favour in violation of relevant rules. Quoting a news story published in a national daily, Pir Ashraf said the daughter of chief justice has been awarded 21 extra marks after re-assessment of her papers, and as a consequence of which, she has superseded almost one hundred thousand students whose parents don't belong to the privileged class like the chief justice. "As to how a PCO judge will dispense justice who has done such a great injustice to thousands of girl students by seeking favour from the federal board for his daughter", Rasool questioned. He demanded an inquiry into the matter by the federal government to make relevant facts known to the public. He termed the alleged incident as violation of all principles of justice, and a sheer injustice to thousands of students who appeared in the examination along with CJ's daughter. Two PML-Q legislators, Mohsin Leghari and Muhammad Yar Hiraj, however, opposed the point of order raised by PML-N member, saying that according to the Constitution, conduct of the judges cannot be discussed in the assembly. They also asked the chair to expunge the speech of Ashraf Rasool from assembly proceedings, but Speaker, Rana Muhammad Iqbal did not accede to their demand. It is pertinent to mention here that Speaker Punjab Assembly Rana Muhammad Iqbal did not stop PML-N legislator from uttering remarks against the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Abdul Hameed Dogar, as he provided him full opportunity to speak his mind. After the concluding remarks of law minister, the Speaker, however, did not allow further discussion in the House on the issue. Meanwhile, another assembly member belonging to JUI, Ali Haider Noor Niazi also tried to raise the issue during assembly proceedings at a later stage, but the chair did not allow him to speak. Niazi demanded of the federal government to suspend the CJ for allegedly violating the principle of merit to the benefit of his daughter.
