Hamza Shahbaz’s “Roshan Gharana Program” in Punjab was suspended by the Election Commission

Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shahbaz’s “Roshan Gharana Program” in Punjab was suspended by the Election Commission, saying that the Punjab Chief Minister had introduced a gambling scheme that could have taken place even after the elections.

A hearing was held on the notice of the Election Commission on the Roshan Gharana program, in which the Election Commission has suspended the Roshan Gharana program of the Punjab government till the by-elections on July 17.

Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja said that this program should be started after the by-elections. We have heard that this election will be transparent. The Election Commission has the support of Army, Rangers and Police. Constituency by-elections are very important, these results are directly related to the Punjab government.

A reply was submitted to the Election Commission by Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shahbaz. Lawyer Khalid Ishaq said that the program announced was not only for these constituencies, 9 million people of Punjab would benefit from the program. Billions of rupees have been allocated in the budget, it is not our goal to take political advantage.

The Chief Election Commissioner said that if it was included in the budget, then what was the need for a separate announcement and press conference? The DG Law Election Commission said that the Punjab Chief Minister had introduced a gambling scheme which could have taken place even after the elections.

A three-member bench headed by Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja heard the case, where Khalid Ishaq, counsel for Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shahbaz, appeared before the Election Commission.
