Government Making Fool in the Name of Democracy and Said Peoples Should Have to Stand for Himself, Chief Justice of Pakistan Anawar Zaheer Jamali on Thursday remarked that the people were being fooled in the name of democracy as monarchy was established in the country in the name of democracy.

The comments came while the Chief Justice was heading a three-member bench to hear Punjab Government’s appeal against Lahore High Court’s decision on the Orange Line Train Project of Lahore.

Previously, the LHC had directed Punjab Government to stop construction work of the project at eleven historical sites of the city. The provincial government moved SC against the verdict.

Hearing the appeal, the bench ordered Punjab Government to constitute a committee of three experts which would submit its reports on the project. The experts should have a neutral position on the train project, the court ruled.
