Islamabad: Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar on Tuesday said that those calling dam funds 'begging' should be ashamed of themselves. While hearing a case pertaining to early construction of Punjab Kidney and Liver Institute, the CJP said: "The construction of dam is in national interests and we are gathering funds for it. Those criticizing the move are dishonorable."

During the case proceedings, the CJP directed to form a committee in the matter while eliminating the board of governors.

 

Justice Iqbal Hameedur Rehman (retd) will chair the committee which will comprise Shahid Niaz, Saifullah Chitthi, Khusro Pervaiz and Jawad Sajid. "The committee will be finalized if the members express their consent," said the CJP. "The institute has become a unique department of Pakistan therefore hurdles will not be created in its way. The trust formed to run the department is beyond understanding. Rs 32 billion was given to the trust among which Rs 23 billion has been spent. All the expense is being paid by Punjab government," added the Chief Justice. 

 

 The institute's lawyer Hamid Khan told that the trust is a part of health department.
