Three Awareness Dinner Galas Featuring Saqib Nisar, Faisal Vawda Cancelled Amid Lack Of Public Interest
LONDON: Three events planned with former Supreme Court Chief Justice Saqib Nisar and federal minister for water resources, Faisal Vawda, were canceled in the United Kingdom over lack of public interest.
Former Chief Justice is in London for over two weeks and had made travel plans accordingly after consulting with event organizers.
According to The News, ‘I am Pakistan Worldwide Movement (IAPWM)’ announced that three “awareness dinner galas” will be held to raise funds. The dinner galas were scheduled in Birmingham, Manchester, and London.
The events in question were being held to raise funds for “Diamer Bhasha & Mohmand Dam”. Former CJP had initiated a Dam fund for Diamer Bhasha & Mohmand Dam back in his tenure.
Ahmed Syed, who recently held similar events in Canada told The News that,
“They didn’t buy the tickets. The tickets are not for dam funds, these tickets are fixed only for the expenditure for the venue, menu, and admin. Another reason was that Faisal Vawda, Firdous Ashiq Awan and some other parliamentarians were stuck in the budget session and that’s why the events were postponed but it was our mistake that we couldn’t inform media and public well in time. Now, we are working to organize these events in October this year.”
Syed Nayyer Rizvi told The News that the event was “delayed due to some visa problems and other unavoidable circumstances”.
