LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) has suspended the notification of the Caretaker Punjab government overseeing drug pricing.

Justice Shahid Karim of LHC heard the case regarding fixing the prices of medicines.

It was argued on behalf of the petitioner, Muhammad Aslam, that the caretaker government issued a notification against the law to fix the prices of medicines, after the notification of the prices of medicines, the prices of drugs will increase.

It was argued in the petition that the government is removing the section to fix prices of drugs from the Drug Act but the caretaker government does not have this power.

It has been said on behalf of the petitioner that the public and democratic government is about to come, it can take this step, the current notification is against the constitution and the law, so the court should order the suspension of the notification till the final decision of the petition.
