Former foreign minister and senior PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that the party will challenge amendments to the NAB laws in the Supreme Court, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Talking to media on Sunday, PTI leader Qureshi lambasted the rulers for incorporating changes in the NAB laws saying that by doing so the PML-N and PPP had given themselves the second NRO. 

“The amendments to the NAB law aim to save the skin of PPP and PML-N leaders and Nawaz Sharif will be the direct beneficiary of these amendments,” he added.

Qureshi lamented that now the anti-graft watchdog had come under the direct control of the federal government. He implored the top court of the country to take notice of it. 

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice-President Maryam Nawaz on Saturday urged the Supreme Court to maintain a distance from the politics of Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan as the latter was trying to drag the state institutions in the politics.

Earlier, in her tweet on May 27, Maryam said: “Fatna Khan, who was abusing the Supreme Court till a few days ago, today wants to fulfill his agenda of anarchy under the guise of this Supreme Court. The Supreme Court must be vigilant and keep itself aloof from this political battle.”

Fawad confesses PTI made mistakes 

On the other hand, former information minister Fawad Chaudhry confessed in his tweet on Sunday that the PTI no doubt had made mistakes but it did not mean that the country would have to bear the Sharifs and Zardari once again for another four decades. 

Fawad Ch tweeted: “There are also mistakes on the part of the PTI that the situation has reached such a precipice. But the question is: will Zardari and Sharif once again run the government for another 40 years. And these four decades will also be wasted away like previous years. Would you like to leave this kind of legacy? Don't underestimate people's anger. People are more angry than expected.”
