محرک کا نام:  جناب محمد بشارت راجہ ،   وزیر قانون

"صوبائی اسمبلی پنجاب کا یہ ایوان 27 ستمبر 2019 کو بزرگ پارلیمنٹرین، چودھری محمد انور بھنڈر کے انتقال پر اپنے رنج و غم کا اظہار کرتا ہے۔ مرحوم ایک نہایت تجربہ کار اور منجھے ہوئے پارلیمنٹرین تھے۔ وہ 1963 سے 1965 اور 1965 سے 1969 تک دو مرتبہ صوبائی اسمبلی مغربی پاکستان کے سپیکر رہے۔ 1977 میں وہ صوبائی اسمبلی پنجاب کے بھی سپیکر رہے۔ انہوں نے نہایت احسن طریقے سے پاکستان کے سب سے بڑے ایوان کو چلایا۔ مرحوم 12 سال سینیٹ کے رکن بھی رہے۔

مرحوم ایک محب وطن سیاستدان تھے جو اصولوں کی سیاست اور جمہوری اقدار پر یقین رکھتے تھے۔ یہ ایوان مرحوم کی وفات کو ایک ناقابل تلافی نقصان قرار دیتا ہے۔ پاکستان کی پارلیمانی تاریخ میں انہیں ہمیشہ اچھے الفاظ سے یاد کیا جائے گا اور ان کی کمی کو ہمیشہ محسوس کیا جائے گا۔ یہ ایوان دُعاگو ہے کہ اللہ تعالیٰ مرحوم کو اپنے جوار رحمت میں جگہ عطا فرمائے اور ان کے لواحقین کو صبر جمیل عطا فرمائے۔ آمین"
