Senator Khokhar in a statement said that this government’s action will give the perception that the judiciary is not independent in its decisions. He asked the Bar councils and the lawyers associations to take a straight stance on this issue.
Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar said that the PTI government has made every institution controversial. It is not in the interest of the country to harm the credibility of institutions for its own political interests. The PTI government wants to quell the revolt within PTI by using the Supreme court.
