Addressing Lahore High Court’s 150th anniversary celebrations, Justice Jamali said that the condition had laid down jurisdiction of every institution.
He said that the situation of the country had worsened as corruption and nepotism could not be eliminated. He called for waging war on social ills on war footing.
