Don’t prolong crisis, hold elections, Shireen Mazari asks govt

Requests SC to take suo moto notice of ‘phone tapping’ by PML-N media cell

July 4, 2022 02:15 PM


Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader Shireen Mazari said on Monday that the coalition government after having failed to find anything concrete against the former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan in order to prove him guilty of corruption had now started targeting his family, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad along with other PTI leaders, she asked as to why the government was prolonging the crisis by delaying holding of general elections in the country.

She reiterated her party’s claim that the present government was the consequence of a foreign conspiracy.

She said that the Supreme Court (SC) had decreed in 1997 that there should be no tapping of phone calls. “But despite that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has gained an expertise in using such sort of dirty tactics to blackmail its opponents,” the PTI leader said, and accused party Vice President Maryam Nawaz of interfering in state affairs.

“I request the SC to take suo moto notice of phone tapping by the government,” Shireen said.

She went on to say that the government was feeling jittery on account of successful PTI rallies. “The country is now completely in the shackles of the International Monetary Fund (IMF),” the PTI leader said, and wondered what the government would do now when the Fund itself had asked it to crackdown on corrupt elements.
