If others are disqualified, why not Nawaz Sharif, asks Sheikh Rashid

ISLAMABAD: Awami Muslim League (AML) Chief Sheikh Rashid Thursday called upon Supreme Court of Pakistan to disqualify Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif under Articles-62 & 63 of the Constitution.


He said this hours before the apex court is scheduled to hear different petitions seeking disqualification of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family members over charges anchored in Panama Papers.

“If other people (lawmakers) can be disqualified, why not Nawaz Sharif?” he wondered asserting it is big day in the history of Pakistan.

He said the asset details of PM Sharif are in the most disproportionate state.

It should be mentioned here that the court will hear as many as five petitions, clubbed together, were filed in the apex court basing on the charges mentioned in Panama Papers.
