LA­HORE: Pak­istan Tehreek-e-In­saf (PTI) Chair­man Im­ran Khan said on Thurs­day that Pak­istan Mus­lim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz dis­re­spects the ju­di­ciary on a daily ba­sis.

The PTI chair­man was ad­dress­ing a joint press con­fer­ence along with Pak­istan Awami League Chief Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri.

Im­ran claimed that Maryam Nawaz, daugh­ter of for­mer Prime Min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif, is be­hav­ing like a deputy prime min­is­ter in the run-up to the by­polls in the NA-120 con­stituency. Re­act­ing to his ar­rest war­rant is­sued by ECP, he re­marked "ECP does not have the au­thor­ity to is­sue ar­rest war­rants. Our case is be­ing heard by Is­lam­abad High Court." He fur­ther re­marked that the ECP has never heard a con­tempt of court case be­fore his. "The ECP is work­ing on PML-N's be­hest."

"Since we filed the Panama pa­pers case pe­ti­tion, so many cases have been filed against us," said Im­ran, adding "some cases were even heard by the Supreme Court." "ECP is only re­spon­si­ble for en­sur­ing that the elec­tions are trans­par­ent. If we have to, then we will even go to the Supreme Court re­gard­ing this bi­ased be­hav­iour of the ECP," Im­ran added.

Im­ran Khan said that he is not al­lowed to enter the NA-120 con­stituency, while PML-N leader are head­ing cam­paign ral­lies. He said that he will pay a visit to Data Dar­bar.

Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri said Nawaz Sharif was dis­qual­i­fied on the ba­sis of dis­hon­esty." You were dis­qual­i­fied be­cause you con­cealed facts and forged of­fi­cial doc­u­ments," he said while sig­nal­ing to­wards dis­qual­i­fied PM Nawaz Sharif. He said that the na­tion has to make a de­ci­sion if it wants to see a pow­er­ful ju­di­ciary or not. He fur­ther said that peo­ple have to de­cide whether they want to elect murderers or an ed­u­cated woman.
