LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s Fawad Chaudhry lashed on political opponent former Nawaz Sharif and said that the way they [Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz] have ridiculed the Supreme Court’s verdict is unprecedented in country’s history.
Chaudhry was addressing a press conference in Lahore on Tuesday.
Referring to Supreme Court’s verdict in which Nawaz Sharif was disqualified as country’s prime minister, he said that the Nawaz keeps asking why was he was disqualified.
Nawaz Sharif failed to prove his innocence during the 134-day hearing of the SC and additional 60-day probe of the Joint Investigation Team, which was formed to probe former PM’s assets, added Chaudhry.
On Nawaz’s appearance before the accountability court on Tuesday, Chaudhry said that government spent millions of rupees for a five-minute appearance of the former premier.
He further said that Nawaz Sharif reached the accountability court surrounded by an escort of 45 cars.
Chaudhry also claimed that PML-N leaders are employing delaying tactics to escape punishment. Chaudhry said: “Sometimes Nawaz Sharif is not the country, sometimes his children are not. These are ways to waste the court’s time.”
He also demanded that SC should look into the behaviour and speeches of PML-N leaders and take an action against it.
Finance Minister Ishaq Dar will be indicted by the accountability court tomorrow [Wednesday]. “But, he has no shame as he did not leave his portfolio as yet,” he added.
