Lahore: Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif on Thursday said that the decision of the Supreme Court in the contempt of court case should be implemented in accordance with all its constitutional and legal demands for the supremacy of law and survival of democracy.
In a statement issued here the Chief Minister demanded that the Prime Minister should immediately resign from his post.
“The business of state cannot be run by ridiculing the decisions of the courts,” he said adding that this trend could prove to be a threat to democratic system.
He said that time has proved that money in Swiss banks looted from the country would have to be returned adding that those who minted millions of dollars through corruption and malpractices and deposited these in foreign banks would meet their logical end.
Shahbaz said that the nation had not rendered sacrifices for the restoration of judiciary and supremacy of law so that the decisions of the courts could be scoffed at openly.
Shahbaz Sharif wished that Prime Minister of Pakistan instead of wasting his energies on protecting the money plundered through corruption had strived for resolving the problems of poor people of Pakistan who were groaning under price-hike and load-shedding.
