Buzdar approaches LHC to seek perks, privileges as former Punjab CM

Former Punjab CM asks court to direct authorities for provision of perks and privileges

Former Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar on Monday approached the Lahore High Court seeking directives for the authorities concerned for provision of perks and privileges as former chief executive of the province.

Sardar Usman Buzdar filed the petition in the LHC and submitted that he was being deprived of the perks and privileges as per the constitution of Pakistan from May 23.

He pleaded with the court to summon the Punjab’s chief secretary to the court and ask him the reason behind suspension of his perks and privileges.

On April 1, the then Punjab governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar accepted Usman Buzdar’s resignation and CM.

The governor accepted the resignation of Buzdar after meeting with the then PM Imran Khan in Islamabad.

Later, he was restored by Omar Sarfaraz Cheema as Punjab governor.

LHC Chief Justice Muhammad Ameer Bhatti would take up the plea on Tuesday (today).

Earlier, PML-N leader Atta Tarat had said that the government was set to launch a probe against the former CM Punjab.

Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader Atta Tarar held a press conference and announced that the government was to launch a probe against Usman Buzdar.

Imran Khan claimed that Buzdar’s performance was not apparent but he had worked very hard, now they would investigate how much work he had done, the PML-N leader said.
