Federal Minister for Defence, Water and Power Khawaja Muhammad Asif said that Pakistan Muslim League-N government will challenge the joint investigation team (JIT) report in the Supreme Court on Monday (July 17). The PML-N government has decided to defend every clause of the report with complete proofs in the SC, he said while talking to the media here on Sunday.

He said that the government was successfully foiling all the conspiracies against the country, adding that the government would not allow anyone to derail democratic system in Pakistan.
Kh Asif made it clear that the prime minister would not step down and he would continue serving the nation. He said that PM Nawaz Sharif had heavy mandate of masses and, therefore, he would never resign. He said that Nawaz Sharif was the most popular prime minister of Pakistan, whose government was toppled illegally twice in the past. He said that the PML-N government would complete its constitutional term.
‘Every time Nawaz Sharif became much stronger after his government was toppled,’ he said adding that the PML-N government was toppled in 1999 as a punishment for making Pakistan an atomic power.
