Ban on book purchases for Punjab libraries

The Punjab government have imposed a ban on the purchase of books by libraries in the province which is causing a slump in the book trade. It appears to be part of a reorganisation of library affairs, controlling who is responsible for the provision of books and furniture for libraries established in the province. This story from the Business Recorder isn\'t very clear, but it would be good to find out more about what is going on in an area that relies heavily on libraries to promote literacy.
