Convict, PO has no right to criticise institutions: Raja Basharat

Lahore

September 22, 2020

LAHORE:Reacting to Nawaz Sharif’s speech during the opposition’s All Parties Conference, Punjab Law Minister Raja Basharat said a Supreme Court convict and a proclaimed offender does not have a right to criticise and undermine the national institutions.

In a media statement issued here on Monday, Raja Basharat said the army has always played a vital role for the development and security of the country. He said the manner in which Nawaz Sharif's speech was allowed on the national media was a political and moral victory of Imran Khan which also proved that the government was not afraid of Nawaz Sharif or the opposition.

Raja Basharat said Nawaz Sharif’s speech was the speech of a frustrated person that created difficulties for his own party. Raja Basharat said Nawaz Sharif's speech could not be called a patriotic speech in any way. He said that launching a no-confidence motion against the Chief Minister of Punjab or others would prove to be a crazy dream as the opposition had already shown its helplessness during its no confidence move against Chairman Senate. Raja Basharat further said that Tehreek-e-Insaf has taken the country out of its difficulties while the opposition wants to push it back but the zealous people of Pakistan will not be fooled by looters again and again.
