January 17, 2020

LAHORE: Governor Ch Sarwar has announced hosting mass wedding of orphan and destitute couples at the Governor's House with the first ceremony to be held in February.

Chairing a meeting at the Governor's House here on Thursday, he said mass wedding would be financed by philanthropists and the Governor's House would open its gates for the great cause. The governor said that 10 per cent of the ceremonies would be arranged for minority couples.

The meeting was attended by Chief Minister’s Complaint Cell Vice Chairman Nasir Suleman, Badshahi Masjid Khateeb Maulana Abdul Khabir Azad, LPG Association Chairman Irfan Khokhar, Mian Saeed Ahmed Deray Wala, Farrukh Chughtai, social workers Shah Rukh Jamal and Ch Muhammad Jamil. Governor Ch Sarwar said that the decision was another step towards Prime Minister Imran Khan’s vision of opening the Governor's House to the common man, adding that orphan and needy couples from across Punjab would be wedded during these ceremonies. He said mass wedding would be a permanent feature of the Governor's House calendar with financial support from the wealthy and the affluent.
