Pakistan criticizes India for refusing journalists to enter Azad Kashmir

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shah said on Friday that ‘there is something cooking in Islamabad’ and he was leaving for the federal capital. Qureshi held a press conference in Multan to denounce the ECP decision to postpone by-elections in 10 National Assembly and 3 provincial assembly constituencies.

While the PTI leader — whose daughter is contesting the by-election in Multan — blasted the ECP decision as unjustifiable since Multan remained unaffected by floods, he also spoke about developments in Islamabad.

Referring to the contempt of court case against Imran Khan, the former foreign minister said that two amici curiae had requested the court to dispose of the case.

Qureshi said that the ‘minus one’ formula never worked in the history of Pakistan. In the past, there were attempts to minus the PPP leaderships and then the minus one formula was applied on Nawaz Sharif, he said.—NNI
