LAHORE: The Punjab government is amending a set of laws through ordinances to tie up loose ends that are allowing or can facilitate terrorist activities in the province, Dawn learnt on Tuesday.
According to reliable sources, the government had earlier decided to introduce bills in the Punjab Assembly to amend the laws. But it dropped the idea and was now going to amend these laws through ordinances in the next few days because of the prorogation of the assembly session, the sources said.
The first law to be amended through an ordinance is the Punjab Arms Ordinance 1965. The government is going to enhance punishments for possessing, using, storing or displaying unlicensed or prohibited weapons and ammunition.
