Arguments sought on admissibility of plea seeking Punjab CM’s disqualification

LAHORE, AUG 17 (DNA) – Lahore High Court (LHC) on Thursday has asked for arguments on the admissibility of petition seeking disqualification of Chief Minister of Punjab (CM) Shehbaz Sharif.

During the hearing, Additional Advocate General told the court that Nawaz Sharif’s homecoming rally was just a party’s cavalcade and not a single penny from government treasure was used.

Earlier, LHC had issued notices to former Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif and 11 federal ministers over contempt of court petition. The advocate remarked that Nawaz Sharif’s speeches not only come under contempt of court but also treason over which Justice Mamoon-ur-Rasheed asked how they come under treason.

The lawyer responded that as per the Constitution, no one is allowed to say anything against judiciary and army.

On August 10, Nawaz Sharif departed for Lahore from Islamabad via GT Road and reached on August 13 amid applause and love from the passionate Pakistan Muslim-League-Nawaz (PML-N) supporters.

Throughout the journey, Nawaz Sharif addressed in big cities including Gujrat, Gujranwala, Muridke and Lahore and denied the SC decision, asking his workers to support him.=DNA
