Addressing a press conference after visiting a medical camp organised by the Pakistan Medical Association and Thatta Bar Association for flood-affected people in Makli on Wednesday, Mr Ahsan said that parliament was the outcome of the struggle waged by lawyers and followed up by other segments of society.
He said that floods had devastated some 20 million people and the remaining population was bound to suffer indirectly. He said he feared there would be anarchy in the country if the government failed to cope with the flood aftermath.
Answering a question, Mr Ahsan said that under Article 248 of the Constitution, head of the state could not be called by any court in any criminal case. However, under sub-section 4 of the same article the president and prime minister could be summoned by a court in a civil case, provided executives were served notices/summons two months before the date of hearing.
