LAHORE:Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar on Tuesday paid special tributes to Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs on record legislation.

Addressing the Punjab Assembly budget session on the last day, he paid rich tributes to the Speaker, Law Minister and Finance Minister for the preparation and approval of the people-friendly budget.

He said that in approving the people-friendly and tax relief budget in the most difficult circumstances, Punjab Law Minister not only showed full wisdom but also responded to the criticism of the opposition by being present in the House every day.
