The political attire of Pakistan has mostly been dangling on the thin line between the opposition and the rival neighbor India. Apparently, after Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) took over, several past corruption kings have been led to punishment. Similarly, after Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N)’s Ishaq Dar was found guilty, his bungalow in Gulberg II, Lahore was turned into a shelter home.
Punjab government removes shelter home from Ishaq Dar’s Lahore residence!
Last week, on Sunday, the provincial government had converted the former finance minister’s house into a shelter for homeless people. Reportedly, the next day, on Monday, the Lahore High Court (LHC) issued a stay order against the government’s decision. Adhering with the orders, the created shelter at Ishaq Dar’s Punjab residence was then shut down by the Punjab government, on Tuesday.
As they say accountability for all, the decision shows a lenient picture of the leadership’s bias implementation. According to local media reports, yesterday night, the board of the shelter home was removed from the ”Hajveri House” by the district administration. Apparently, the government had confiscated several possessions of Ishaq Dar after he was pronounced guilty in different corruption cases.
The shelter home to set up into a park next to Ishaq Dar’s house!
The latest reports reveal that the administration has moved the shelter house to an open park beside Ishaq Dar’s house. With all the basic facilities, a separate container has also been placed in the park with respect to the privacy of women. Furthermore, temporary toilets have also been installed for the people living in the shelter home.
As per the administration’s statement, currently, there is no electricity in the house but it will be provided very soon. On Tuesday, soon after the removal of shelter home from the former finance minister’s residence, district administration came into action. Reportedly, arrangements for the homeless people living in the shelter had begun latter, the same night.
Well, the restraining order of the LHC came in as a response to Ishaq Dar’s wife Mrs. Tabassum Dar’s petition against the government. Particularly, Justice Shahid Bilal Hassan heard Mrs. Tabassum Dar’s appeal and issued the stay order. Moreover, regarding the conversion of personal residence into a welfare house, the judge ordered the provincial government to respond within 10 days.
