PML-N leaders lash out at opposition over objections on JIT in Panama case


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders spelled out outrageous comments over the opposition after the National Assembly’s session was adjourned for an indefinite period on Friday due to the 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.

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.

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.
