ISLAMABAD (APP): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders spelled out outrageous comments over the opposition after the National Assembly’s session was prorogued by the deputy speaker on Friday due to the opposition lawmakers protest against the Panama verdict.
Speaking outside the parliament, Raja Zafarul Haq said that Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has never learnt to respect the judiciary. He expressed confidence that their opponents will continue to face humiliation in future as PML-N will emerge victorious at every forum. Raja Zafarul Haq regretted PPP’s attitude during the proceedings of the Upper House and said that although PPP has rejected the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) his party will follow the instructions of the apex court and every decision will be taken in accordance with the law. He argued that the opposition has no justification to demand the prime minister’s resignation.
Abid Sher Ali while commenting on the objections raised by the opposition on Joint Investigation team (JIT) members, asked whether Ayyan Ali and Dr Asim should be made a part of JIT. He asserted that Maryam Nawaz’s name has been cleared by the court in Panamgate case. Abid Sher Ali declared that Thursday’s decision of the Supreme Court reflects the aspirations of the people of the country.
Daniyal Aziz also lashed out at Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan demanding him to issue a public denial regarding hiding his assets and tax evasion. Tariq Fazal Chaudhry went on to say that the Supreme Court’s orders have reprieved not only the prime minister but his well-wishers too.
A day after Supreme Court’s verdict in Panama Leaks case, the opposition parties unanimously demanded Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to step down from the post till completion of probe by the Joint Investigation Team. Opposition senators participated in the Senate and National Assembly sessions with black ribbons tied on their arms as a gesture to record protest. The parliament echoed with chants of ‘Go Nawaz, Go’ as the opposition registered its protest before the speaker’s dais and staged a walkout.
