ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry lands in hot waters over disqualification case.
The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has issued notices to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) and the Law Ministry regarding an application seeking the disqualification of federal minister Fawad Chaudhry , on Thursday.
According to details, IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah heard the case.
During the hearing, the petitioner’s lawyer said Chaudhry is no longer Sadiq (honest) and Ameen (truthful) since he failed to declare his lands in Jhelum, which is why the court should disqualify the federal minister.
The petitioner’s lawyer further said Chaudhry had concealed his assets while submitting his nomination papers with the election body.
To this, the CJP Minallah inquired who can be declared Sadiq and Ameen?
