LAHORE: The appointment of new ministers in the Federal Cabinet has been challenged in the Lahore High Court (LHC) Friday, Geo News reported.
The petitioner, Advocate Azhar Siddique is of the view that the induction of new ministers in the Cabinet is illogical and an economic burden for the country.
People who were involved in corruption have been appointed as ministers and by doing so, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has proved himself ineligible.
The petitioner pleaded that the court should declare the appointment of new ministers invalid, and disqualify the prime minister from his office.
The latest expansion in the Federal Cabinet, when general elections are round the corner, has invoked criticism from all the political parties. They are of the view that when the government is already facing criticism for not being able to ease the people’s burden, the induction of a fleet of ministers is unjust and illogical.
