Idol of honesty and trust dismantled: Shehbaz

PM Shehbaz

Says ECP delivered justice in Toshakhana case

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif Friday said that the Election Commission of Pakistan has delivered justice following its verdict issued in the Toshakhana reference against PTI Chairman Imran Khan.

The prime minister took to Twitter to share his reaction to the verdict.

“The Election Commissioner has delivered justice in the Toshakhana reference. The nation witnessed how [Khan] turned the prime minister’s position into a source of his personal income to commit corrupt practices. The idol of honesty and trust has been dismantled,” the premier wrote, criticising PTI for fighting against the law and bringing riotous groups holding bullets/sticks onto the streets instead of bowing before the law.

“No one is above the law,” the premier added.

Following the verdict issued against the PTI chief, Minister for Poverty Alleviation Shazia Marri addressed a press conference and condemned PTI’s violent reaction to the ECP’s decision.

“Destroying the country should not be a reaction to the decisions of institutions and courts,” she said, adding that the politics of anarchy and bullying had neither been successful in the past nor will it succeed at present.

Commenting on Khan hiding his foreign funding while making claims of being ‘sadiq’ and ‘ameen’ and the PTI being annoyed at ECP’s verdict in its reaction, Marri added: “Imran Khan is seeking revenge for having the prime minister’s chair taken away from him. Khan’s team was frustrated. The verdict that isn’t issued in Khan’s favour is disregarded as worthless.”

She added that Khan was ousted through the vote that initially made him the prime minister.
