Flanked by bars general secretary Fahad Habib Tanoli, he said that suggestions about financial relief in ongoing Covid-19 emergency were proposed by a senior lawyer and ex -member KP Bar Council, Hafiz Muhammad Naseem. “The members overwhelmingly supported the suggestion and I have taken up the issue with the KP Bar Council seeking an immediate release of Rs100, 000 for each member so that they could manage day-to-day financial affairs,” said Swati.
