Federal Minister for Law Azam Nazir Tarar said on Wednesday the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) should consider facing courts before demonstrating for the judiciary.
Addressing a press conference he said the PTI government had victimised the opposition during its tenure, adding that their policies helped mount the pressure on courts. “The court restored the National Assembly while PTI chief Imran Khan stormed the court and rejected its verdict,” he added.
He alleged that Mr Khan was, on one hand, rallying for justice while on the other hand, ridiculing the judiciary. “The courts serve notices upon him but he appears only whenever he wills,” he added.
Former PM Nawaz Sharif’s ouster was engineered while Mr Khan always got favours and was ousted democratically. “Mr Sharif always respected court’s orders, left her ailing wife in the UK, and came back to the country,” he added.
Law Minister also shed light on the legal complications for the government following the Supreme Court’s verdict regarding elections in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, as he stressed that it was a constitutional requirement to have caretaker governments in all provinces to proceed with the general elections.
