Maryam Nawaz disrespects judiciary on daily basis, alleges Imran
NA-120 showdown: Qadri announces support for PTI
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.
