He demanded Imran Khan, Qadri and Sheikh Rashid to accept that the masses rejected Supreme Court decision in Panama case.
The outspoken minister said that they had accepted SC decision in Panama case, asking opponent not to urge them to have faith in the decision.He added that the apex court’s verdict was not a divine order. He added that the decision of hanging of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto was made a judicial murder by PML-N rather people had not accepted the decision and dubbed it as a judicial murder.
To substantiate his point, Sanaullah said that the SC had itself overturned the verdicts of Justice Dogar-led Supreme Court.“Imran Khan dragged the Supreme Court in front of us as a political party,” he alleged.
He was referring to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman’s reported statement that Sunday’s victory in the NA-120 by-election with a low margin shows the people stand with the Supreme Court.Addressing a press conference in Lahore, Sanaullah claimed scientific means were used to divide the votes of the PML-N.“To say that Supreme Court judges were offered money is contempt of court, as is saying that voting for a particular party is like voting for the Supreme Court,” said Sanaullah.
He requested the Chief Justice of Pakistan to ensure the apex court’s sanctity is kept intact and the Supreme Court is not used for political purposes by anyone.
