Lahore: NADRA may be an interior ministry domain but this doesn’t mean that interior minister should chair its meetings. Today, The Lahore High Court restrained Chaudhry Nisar from heading all meetings of (Nadra) until further notice.

The court also restrained deputy chairman of the authority from working. The orders came as LHC Chief Justice Syed Mansoor Ali Shah heard a petition regarding the deputation of eight members at Nadra authority board. Justice Shah remarked that the court would not let [anyone] undermine the independence of institutions.

The petitioner Awaisur Rehman Advocate upheld that Nadra Ordinance does not allow the interior minister to head the meetings of the board. Despite this, meetings of the board are held with Nisar in the chair.
