Lahore (May 19, 2017): Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said that International Court of Justice (ICJ) has only stayed Yadhav’s Execution but its jurisdiction issue in the case is still undecided as India propagated the verdict negatively.
Talking to Media outside the Punjab assembly, he said that Kalbhushan case being moved forward according to the constitution and the law of the country but India was waging negative propaganda in this connection.
Rana Sanaullah said on Friday that there are no signs of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s Chairman Imran Khan becoming a prime minister of the country in the near future.
“Imran ‘s political career will end in 2018 due to his pessimistic politics,” said Sanaullah, adding that Imran would not be able to find shortcuts to the prime ministership.
“His (Imran’s) political funeral has been held and will be buried after the Joint Investigation Team’s probe,” said the law minister.
Sanaullah said that all the institutions should act in coordination, keeping the aspect of national security in mind.
Replying to question he said Orange Line and Metro Bus were the projects not only for Lahore but for entire Punjab, however changing Orange Line Lahore route could increase the cost of the project.
While referring to the International Court of Justice’s verdict on Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav, he said that it is the government’s prerogative to accept the verdict, adding that a decision would be reached based on national interest when the time comes.
The ICJ had ordered Pakistan on Thursday to halt the execution of Jadhav until a final decision in the proceedings. “Pakistan shall take all measures at its disposal to ensure that Jadhav is not executed pending the final decision in these proceedings,” ordered Judge Ronny Abraham, president of the court, as he announced the decision.
