‘Sharif family made botched attempts to subvert judiciary’, says Bilawal
KARACHI: Inaugurating Drigh Road underpass, Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Saturday said that he anticipates a ‘fair judgment’ by Supreme Court of Pakistan in the Panama Papers case, ARY News reported.
Speaking to party workers on the occasion, Bilawal said that the Sharif family has made several botched attempts to subvert the judiciary. “They have committed forgery and perjury besides corruption. I am hopeful for a verdict upholding justice,” he added.
On Friday, the Supreme Court of Pakistan reserved its judgment in the Panama Papers implementation case with the bench observing that matters related to the prime minister’s disqualification would be evaluated.
The PPP is expected to announce its future course of action after the verdict of the Supreme Court.
He was accompanied by Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, Local Bodies Minister Jam Khan Shoro and Chairman District Council Salman Abdullah Murad.
The construction work of Drigh Road underpass took four months and completed with the total cost of Rs660 million.

Early today, Opposition Leader in the National Assemby, Khursheed Shah called upon Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to step down by tonight and replace himself with a new prime minister from the party.
“We want Parliament to complete its tenure and resignation of the premier will be in the best interest of democracy,” remarked Shah.
Cautioning PM Sharif, he said that the premier should act smart and select a new premier to lead the country.
He conceded objections concerning Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar with regard to Panama Papers case and PM’s resignation as he said: “Despite my differences with Nisar, I see his objections justified over PM Sharif consulting with the junior members of his party and ignoring the senior leadership.”
