Punjab Governor Malik M Rafiq Rajwana has said that poets and writers play key role in creating youth’s awareness of different issues as they have a realisation of problems being faced by the society.

Talking to a delegation of poets, writers and intellectuals here at Circuit House on Wednesday, the governor lauded the idea of holding a conference of authors (Ahl-e-Qalam Conference) in Multan. He said that it would be an honour for him to participate in the event. He asked the delegates to send him a proposal for holding a conference so that arrangements could be made for it. He said that the demands made by the delegation would be reviewed. Earlier, he visited High Court Bar and met with the lawyers.

A large number of lawyers gathered at the bar room after learning about Governor’s arrival and accorded him a warm welcome. The governor said on the occasion that bar room was his home and he could not stay away from it.
