PM Imran Khan takes a veiled dig at the top judiciary, makes an appeal to the CJP
*ISLAMABAD - **Prime Minister Imran Khan takes a veiled dig at the top judiciary, makes an appeal to the Chief Justice of PAKISTAN.*
*P**rime Minister Imran Khan appealed on Monday to Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa and Justice Gulzar Ahmed to dispel the perception of double standard of law in the country.*
“I respect the intelligent Chief Justice Khosa and Justice Gulzar. I want to request them to set our country free by delivering justice,” the premier said while addressing a ceremony in Havelian on Monday.
“This has become a perception in Pakistan that there’s one law for the powerful and another for the weak. The history of our country tells us that our legal system can’t touch the powerful.”
He urged CJ Khosa and Justice Gulzar to “fix this perception”.
PM Khan said, “Our law should be such that if the weakest person stands against the mighty one then the former must be sure of getting justice.”
He said the government would fully back the judiciary but the institution had to restore the people’s confidence in it.
