Zulfi Bukhari grilled in Supreme Court of Pakistan

LAHORE – The Supreme Court on Friday grilled Zulfiqar Bukhari, special assistant to PM Imran Khan on overseas Pakistanis.

SC sought a detailed report regarding the bio data, eligibility and appointment of Zulfi Bukhari as the prime minister’s special assistant on overseas Pakistanis and human resource development.

Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar presided over the hearing in the top court’s Lahore registry.

“Appointing individuals on significant posts is an imperative national duty. These issues will run as per national interests and not on the basis of friendship,” remarked the judge.

The CJP while expressing resentment over the behaviour of Bukhari maintained, “Leave your anger at home. You will be the friend of someone else but not of Supreme Court.”

Bukhari’s counsel Aitzaz Ahsan told court that appointing a special adviser is the right of the prime minister.
