Nisar’s remarks tantamount to attack on SC: PTI
From Our Correspondent
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Vice-Chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan’s press conference in response to the judicial commission’s report on Quetta attack was “tantamount to attack on Supreme Court of Pakistan”. Talking to reporters outside Bani Gala residence of PTI chief Imran Khan, Qureshi said the issue of Panama Papers leaks and Nisar’s reponse to the judicial commission’s report were discussed in the party meeting. He said that the report was compiled by a sitting judge of the Supreme Court, who was assigned the task by a three member-bench of the apex court. He added that the judge filed the 110-page report after conducting investigations over a span of 54 days. Commenting on Nisar’s clarification regarding his meeting with ASWJ leader Ahmed Ludhianvi, where the interior minister had said he wasn’t told that Ludhianvi was also among the participants of the meeting, Qureshi pointed that “how it was possible for Ludhianvi to attend the meeting when his name was not on the list of participants?” Talking about the military courts, he said that validity of the military courts, established under the 21st Constitutional Amendment passed by parliament to on January 21 to engage an extra ordinary challenge, is going to expire shortly.
