Imran asks judiciary to take notice of PML-N leaders’ diatribes against Panamagate verdict
ISLAMABAD: Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran on Sunday asked the judiciary to take notice of the statements given by the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leaders against the Supreme Court verdict in Panama Leaks case, ARY News reported.
“When we gathered people on streets against corruption of the rulers, we were accused of conspiring against the system. While, it is not clarified on what basis the ruling party is going to hold rally. Are they going to protest against the top court decision,” he questioned while talking to media after PTI central executive committee meeting in Islamabad.
He said the ruling party leaders were accusing the judiciary and military of conspiring against them. By this you are going against the constitution of Pakistan, hence you should be charged under Article 6, he said of the PML-N.
“These guys are publicly repudiating court decision. N-League and Mir Shakil have teamed up. They jointly do propaganda. We stand by Army and court and would not let conspirators succeed in their design,” he said.
Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif is set to lead a rally from Rawalpindi to Lahore via Grand Trunk Road.
The rally planned on August 09 was in violation of the Supreme Court verdict, which not only disqualified him from the office of the prime minister but also from heading a political party, a petition filed by the civil society reads. In the light of the verdict, he could neither lead nor be member of a political party, it argued.
Imran said Nawaz could not pressurize to evade the National Accountability Bureau by calling rally. You have been caught red-handed, he added.
He questioned on whose signals was the former PM working against the military.
He regretted on the Model Town incident saying such incident could take place only in a uncivilised society. He demanded to make public the report of Justice Baqir Najfi on the Model Town incident.
The PTI chief also announced that PTI will fully participate in the rally going to be held by Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rasheed in Rawalpindi.
