Imran looking for another Saqib Nisar: Maryam

MURREE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz Tuesday claimed that PTI Chairman Imran Khan was searching for another figure like former chief justice of Pakistan (CJP) Saqib Nisar in the judiciary to support him. Imran on Monday said that if the SC did not provide his party “protection” from police action for the next round of their protest, he would opt for a different strategy wherein his supporters would be “prepared” to deal with any situation. Addressing the PML-N’s social media team in Murree, Maryam responded: “He (Imran) is searching for a Saqib Nisar in the judiciary and [also] looking for a [contact] number in the establishment [since the previous one] is now closed.” She accused the PTI chief of trying to drag the judiciary into his “failed politics”. “I was watching TV yesterday and he (Imran) was addressing the courts and the Supreme Court (SC) as if he was ordering them,” she said. The PML-N vice president urged the judiciary to not become part of his “disgusting and chaotic politics”. “He has set out with the intent to turn a few judges of the judiciary into Saqib Nisar,” she added. Criticising the former CJP, she said he had made such “brutal and one-sided decisions” that there was no refuge for him apart from Imran. Maryam alleged that Imran was “more dangerous than terrorists” as he was operating in the guise of a political party.
