Supreme Court and Prime Minister’s Dam fund has been declared the new name for Diamer-Bhasha and Mohmand Dams by the Supreme Court. In the hearing held to analyze the crowdfunding work, the name of the dam was changed by the Supreme Court.
The Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar said that all the people who want to be part of the fund are welcome. He said that it was not necessary to add the name of the Prime Minister.
Justice Nisar said, “Supreme Court should be added to the name of the dam fund, not the chief justice’s name.”
Furthermore, Justice Ijazul Ahsan said that “if Prime Minister Imran Khan wants to be a party to the court’s initiative, then we will support it”.
On September 7th Prime Minister Imran Khan appreciated the work done by CJP Nisar to collect funds for the construction of dams. He said that “the Chief Justice has done something which should have been done by the country’s politicians.”
A federal law officer claimed that changing the dam fund’s name will cause problems as it would have to be changed in all advertisements. Justice Ijazul Ahsan said that the fund name in old advertisements should not be changed. But in the new ones, the new name must be used.
