Saad appeals SC to take notice of politicians’ comments on Panama Papers case hearing; Daniyal says, IK fails to achieve case objectives
Minister for Defence, Water and Power, Khawaja Muhammad Asif said the enemies of the country do not want Pakistan to reach its destination which was promised by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in its 2013 elections manifesto. Speaking to newsmen outside the Supreme Court Minister for Defence, Water and Power, Khawaja Muhammad Asif said the enemies of the country do not want Pakistan to reach its destination which was promised by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in its 2013 elections manifesto.
He said that PML-N Government is fulfilling all its election pledges, which will further solidify Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s popularity which is perturbing PTI. Criticizing Imran Khan, Khawaja Asif said he had done nothing for the well being of the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Meanwhile, Minister for Railways, Khawaja Saad Rafique, Thursday appealed to the Supreme Court (SC) to take notice of comments being made by the political parties outside SC over its observations, remarks and questions during the proceeding of the Panama Papers case.
However if the PTI did not stop this, the PML-N would restart interaction with the media. He said it was inappropriate to give lectures after the court proceedings and stressed that the politicians and the media should not become judges. The minister said the politicians should avoid vitiating the atmosphere in the country.
He said that hundreds of thousands of people remit their earnings to their families back home and similarly Hussain Nawaz sent money to his father.
Saad said, “We have rendered sacrifices for the sake of democracy and raised voice against dictatorship.” The minister said that Benazir Bhutto was a great leader and the void created by her death had not been filled yet. Khawaja said Nawaz Sharif was needed by the country as he was a visionary leader and made the country’s defence impregnable after nuclear test.
Answering a question, Saad said the PTI leaders forced them to adopt a harsh language because he levelled baseless allegations and they just responded to them. He said he regretted his remarks about Sheikh Rashid the other day.
While, talking to media persons in premises of the Supreme court here on Thursday, Leader of Pakistan Muslim League (PML) Nawaz Daniyal Aziz said that Imran Khan could not achieve his desired objective from Panama Papers case on the basis of false allegations. He said the PTI had not even produced a single evidence before the apex court.
Daniyal Aziz said Imran Khan and Jehangir Tareen challenged the references against them in Election Commission on basis of maintainability and jurisdiction. He said the Election Commission had rejected plea of PTI Chief Imran Khan for immunity and asked both of them to provide evidence.
While before the Election Commission, he stated that he could not sell the London flat and took money as a gift from his former wife Jemima Khan for purchasing the land in Bani Gala. He said Imran Khan was always flanked by Jehangir Tareen, who traded shares on stock exchange in the names of his gardener.
Daniyal Aziz said that Prime Minister,Muhammad Nawaz Sharif was the popular leader of Pakistan, elected thrice as Prime Minister and Imran Khan was attempting to malign him with false accusations.
He said the counsel of Sharif family proved before the Supreme Court of Pakistan that no tax evasion, money laundering and concealment of assets was done by the Sharif family.
The counsel submitted the tax returns and relevant documents explaining the money trail of the businesses, he added.—APP
