The Lahore High Court has scheduled a hearing for a miscellaneous application filed against the Punjab government's decision to distribute flour bags adorned with the image of Nawaz Sharif during Ramazan, reported 24NewsHD TV channel Monday.

Justice Shahid Karim is set to preside over the case brought forth by citizen Munir Ahmed, with Advocate Azhar Siddique representing the petitioner.

The petition challenges the use of Nawaz Sharif's photograph on flour bags, arguing that it constitutes a misuse of the Punjab Government's treasury for personal publicity.

The petitioner contends that such actions undermine the dignity of citizens and suggests that government funds should be channelled through initiatives like the Benazir Income Support Program instead.
