While reacting to apex court advice of returning to National Assembly (NA), former information minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Fawad Chaudhry on Thursday said Pakistan has suffered $5 billion due to regime change.

Taking to Twitter, the former federal minister said that the Supreme Court (SC) has no idea that regime change operation has so far caused $5 billion loss to Pakistan in terms of currency alone. Responding to Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial’s statement, Fawad Chaudhry said that the CJ’s observation contradicts with the Constitution.

“Rather than the expenditure on general elections, we are paying a much higher price for the decision of the Supreme Court which stopped the polls,” he added. Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court of Pakistan advised Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf to reconsider its decision to resign from the National Assembly.—INP
