PM - CJP surprise meeting: Questions start to arise

ISLAMABAD: Opposition leader in the National Assembly, Syed Khurshid Shah has broken the silence over the issue of the surprise meeting between the CJP and MP.

He reacted over one-on-one meeting between Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar, which took place at the Supreme Court building earlier today.

Speaking in Geo News’ programme Capital Talk, Shah told host Hamid Mir that although there is nothing ‘extraordinary’ about such a meeting, the timing of such a happening is unusual and would fuel speculation in the current climate.

“There were similar meetings between the PM and CJP during our tenure as well.

The timing of the meeting, however, is unusual and will fuel speculation and doubts [in the prevailing climate].

There are many ongoing cases against the government,” said the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader.
