Lock­down un­con­sti­tu­tional, state writ to be en­sured at all cost: PML-N

Pakistan Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

fed­eral gov­ern­ment on Mon­day an­nounced that it would not al­low any one to lock down the cap­i­tal and would en­sure writ of the state at ev­ery cost.

Ad­dress­ing a news con­fer­ence along with PMLN Cor­ner’, for which a clear as­sur­ance from PTI was re­quired. He re­gret­ted that PTI lead­ers in­clud­ing Naeemul Haq had time and again said that his party ac­tivists would bring the rou­tine life to stand­still in the fed­eral cap­i­tal, Im­ran Khan him­self had an off­shore com­pany Ni­azi Ser­vices Lim­ited which was reg­is­tered in New Jersey in 1993.

In­ter­na­tional Con­sor­tium of In­ves­tiga­tive Jour­nal­ists (ICIJ) showed on its web­site as­sets. He re­called that dur­ing the last sit in of PTI, Pres­i­dent House, Par­lia­ment, Prime Min­is­ter House and Sec­re­tariat were at­tacked. The ICJC on its web­site had deleted the name of Prime Min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif.

The le­gal sec­tion of the web­site stated that name of Nawaz Sharif was not in the Panama Leaks and nei­ther it was im­plied nor sug­gested that the per­sons whose names were men­tioned in Panama Leaks did any­thing wrong, he ex­plained. Daniyal said in the pe­ti­tion of Im­ran Khan be­fore the Supreme Court on Panama is­sue, the name of Prime Min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif was not men­tioned as a re­spon­dent.

PTI knew that its pe­ti­tion in the Supreme Court was a ridicu­lous joke as yet again it has not pro­duced any ev­i­dence, he added. The pe­ti­tion of PTI on Panama Leaks was sim­i­lar to their ac­cu­sa­tion of 35 punc­tures, which Im­ran Khan said was a mere political state­ment, he added.

Talal Chaudhry said in Pak­istan in the last 70 years, the right to protest was ex­er­cised. How­ever, chaos could not be al­lowed in the name of protest, he said adding it was for the first time that chief min­is­ter of a prov­ince was lead­ing as­sault on Is­lam­abad, he added.

Talal said armed men wanted to lock down Is­lam­abad and par­a­lyze the cap­i­tal so that im­ages could be showed that there was no gov­ern­ment work­ing in Is­lam­abad.—APP
