  • PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif says if politicians get involved in “treason and patriotism” then matter will get out of hand.
  • Shahbaz says PM Imran instead of admitting defeat is busy dividing the nation. 
  • PML-N leader hopes police and Islamabad administration will maintain law and order in view of SC orders.

ISLAMABAD: Hitting out at PM Imran Khan over his televised question and answer session with the nation, Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif said that a “treason case” should be first registered against the premier.

“Treason case should be first registered against Imran Khan by not ending his [2014] sit-in Imran Khan harmed the nation’s pride,” said Shahbaz Sharif in a press conference immediately after PM’s address.

The PML-N president said that if politicians get involved in “treason and patriotism” then the matter will get out of hand. He added that if PM Imran Khan goes against the constitution and the law, then they will take their course.

Shahbaz’s statement on treason comes as PM Imran alleges that the no-confidence motion moved against him is a “foreign conspiracy”

“Imran Khan, instead of admitting defeat, is busy dividing the nation. He is refusing to follow the constitutional and legal path,” said Shahbaz. He claimed that the premier was directly taking on the Constitution

“He is inciting his supporters to sabotage the decision that will be taken in Parliament tomorrow,” said Shahbaz on PM Imran’s call for protests tomorrow ahead of the vote on the no-confidence motion.

The Opposition leader said that MNAs have the right to enter Parliament, adding that incitement to violence will be accounted for after being defeated in the no-confidence motion.

“I am hoping that the police and the administration will maintain law and order in view of the Supreme Court orders,” said Shahbaz.

Shahbaz defends “beggars cannot be choosers” comments

The Opposition leader also spoke about his “beggars cannot be choosers” comment on Pakistan. Shahbaz said that it was “not the first time” that he had made such a comment.

“We have been taking loans one after another and will have to break the shackles but breaking the shackles will not be easy,” said the PML-N president.

“I don’t care about Imran Khan’s nonsense. Nation’s independence doesn’t mean anything if it isn’t economically empowered,” said Shahbaz. He added that “freedom” is not possible without self-reliance.

The Opposition leader said that, so far, Pakistan has not become “economically independent”. He gave the examples of Germany and Japan saying that they were defeated in World War 2, but they reached their peak by working hard.

A bail application filed by Chaudhry Parvez Elahi, a leader of the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) party, in the Jinnah House attack case has been rejected by an Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) on the grounds of prematurity.

ATC Judge Arshad Javed announced the decision during today’s hearing.

The counsel representing Parvez Elahi contended that there was a significant likelihood of his client being arrested in relation to the Jinnah House attack case. It was stated that the ex-Chief Minister had previously been held in custody on judicial remand in other cases.

The petitioner requested the court to authorise the release of Parvez Elahi on bail in the Jinnah House attack case.

Nevertheless, the prosecution argued that the bail petition did not meet the necessary legal criteria, emphasising that Parvez Elahi had not been apprehended in connection with the case.

Considering these considerations, the court rejected Parvez Elahi’s request for release, stating that it was premature since he had not been arrested in the Jinnah House attack case.

Speaking to the media outside the accountability court in Karachi, he asserted that the country cannot function effectively without implementing significant reforms in the system.

He advocated for transferring authority to competent individuals to address the country’s issues.

He stated that no measures were implemented to address the violation of the constitution. If we want to recall the past, we must return to the year 1947.

“The government lacks a public mandate, and this arrangement has been established using the same method previously employed by the founder of the PTI to establish his government,” stated Shahid Khaqan.

According to him, political parties would traditionally establish themselves prior to elections with the aim of accomplishing specified objectives. “We discuss individuals’ issues, political parties have embraced this approach to secure power,” he stated.

“The court inquired about the offence.” The NAB has also stated that no pecuniary benefit was obtained in the case,” he remarked during the case hearing.

After several years of visiting courts, the NAB has been unable to provide any evidence. The previous Prime Minister said that they even neglect to specify which powers were improperly utilised. The former chairman of the NAB is obligated to provide a response for it.

According to him, the NAB has caused significant damage to the national economy.

Regarding his political party, he stated that the party will be established within the upcoming month and individuals from all regions of Pakistan will unite with it.

In an earlier hearing, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) cleared Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, former finance minister Miftah Ismail, Chairman Engro Hussain Dawood, Board member Abdul Samad Dawood, and others of any wrongdoing in the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) issue.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) retracted the corruption accusation against the ex-prime minister, who has persistently advocated for the elimination of the anti-corruption agency due to allegations of political persecution.
