Will pack up if I fail to resist martial law: CJP says

F.P. Report

ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar has categorically said that the upcoming general elections will be held on time, without any delay.

“There is no room for judicial martial law in the country,” he said while addressing an event held in honour of late human rights activist Asma Jahangir.

He said that some people were spreading pre-planned rumours about judicial martial law. “If I won’t be able to resist martial law I would pack up and go home, but would not endorse it,” he said, and vowed to resist any extra-constitutional move.

Paying tribute to Asma Jahangir, the CJP said that she was a brave lady, who always supported the truth.
