Nawaz bent on destroying democracy, judiciary after disqualification: Imran
Nawaz Sharif is bent upon destroying the country’s judiciary and democratic system after being disqualified by the Supreme Court of Pakistan, claimed Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Sunday.
According to Express News, Imran said that the apex court gave a unanimous decision in the Panama Papers case but by challenging the court, former premier Nawaz is ruining the judicial system.
On July 28, a five-member SC bench hearing the Panama Papers case of Sharif family’s offshore assets had disqualified Nawaz from the PM’s office for failing to declare a salary, which he had not withdrawn as an executive of Dubai-based company, as an asset when filing his nomination papers in 2013.
According to several news outlets, Nawaz has decided to head to his hometown Lahore on August 9 travelling along GT Road instead of the motorway in a convoy and stopping at various places to address crowds in a bid to show his popularity. It is being reported that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz is mobilising workers from across the province to greet the ousted PM along the route.
