Commenting on National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri’s ruling on April 3, in which he had thrown out the opposition’s no-trust motion, saying there was a foreign conspiracy behind it, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Tuesday that by doing so at the behest of Prime Minister Imran Khan, the deputy speaker had made mockery of the country’s constitution.
Also terming it a ‘historic fraud’ with the people of Pakistan, PML-N spokesperson said at present there was no government in the country. “Both the houses, namely the President House and the Prime Minister House are inhabited by those who had trampled upon the constitution just two days ago,” she alleged.
She was of the view that since right now the constitution was suspended, the country was in deep political, economic and constitutional crisis. Marriyum also opined that the prime minister’s orders had no legal and constitutional validity.
She even went to the extent of saying that whosoever would comply with PM Imran’s instructions would be deemed as a partner in his crime, and would be proceeded against under article-6 of the constitution. She opined that the prime minister, in a bid to remain in office, had held the entire nation hostage. “And thus the country is suffering an irreparable loss,” she said. PML-N spokesperson said that PM Imran was trying to take cover behind the allegation of a foreign conspiracy to hide his ‘incompetence, corruption and historic failures’.
