Maryam Nawaz, senior vice president of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), has launched a scathing attack on former Prime Minister Imran Khan, claiming that the state and its institutions cannot be governed by “terrorists and fitna [mischief] like him.” Nawaz’s comments come after reports that the PTI chairman had distanced his party from the ruling coalition’s desire to form a full Supreme Court bench on the issue of the Punjab elections delay. Khan had reportedly said that “it makes no difference, whether a bigger or full bench conducts hearing.”
Khan’s stance on the issue has been met with resistance from the PDM administration and its purported handlers, who are trying to violate the Constitution, according to Khan. Maryam Nawaz has responded to Khan’s comments by saying that using the name of a sacred item like the Constitution by the “certified offender of constitution” in the history of Pakistan is a terrible joke. She has also stated that the nation, the state, and its institutions cannot carry out the directives of terrorists and fitna like Khan.
Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafiq has also commented on the contentious legislation that aims to restrict the chief justice of Pakistan’s authority. Rafiq has said that now that the new law has been adopted by parliament, the court is required to abide by it. He believes that a thorough court hearing is the only way to resolve the current problem, and that the case will begin from the moment where it was sabotaged.
The issue of the Punjab elections delay has become a contentious one, with the coalition government demanding that the Supreme Court’s full court bench be assembled to hear the case. Khan’s stance on the issue has been met with resistance from the PDM administration and its purported handlers, who are accusing him of trying to violate the Constitution.
In conclusion, the political landscape in Pakistan remains highly charged, with accusations and counter-accusations flying between the different parties. The issue of the Punjab elections delay is just one of many issues that need to be resolved if the country is to move forward. It remains to be seen how this issue will be resolved, and whether the different parties can find a way to work together for the greater good of the nation.
