Lahore: PML-Q senior central leader and former Deputy Prime Minister Ch Pervaiz Elahi has said that only Allah is powerful, we have seen many claimants of strong chair going early, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s calling opposition terrorist deplorable, he is in panic.
Talking to media at his residence here today, he said the language which the prime minister has started using against the opposition does not suit him, Panama Leaks have from Almighty Allah against the rulers and not from the opposition, all parties have unanimously formulated Terms of Reference (ToRs).
Asked whether the govt and the army are on the same page, he said even Nawaz Sharif cannot himself answer this question, “I think they have separate book”.
Responding to another question, Ch Pervaiz Elahi said that the prime minister should keep this in mind that the opposition members are also peoples elected representatives and there are members in the parliament who are more senior than him (PM), saying words like “yeh moonh aur masoor ki daal” and “kis ko lalkara hai” do not suit the prime minister. He said that to protest is fundamental right of every politician.
In reply to a question about the Judicial Commission over Panama Leaks, he said that the Chief Justice should have powers under which he could decide, under 1956 Act he (CJP) has the powers of only of a civil judge, as such it is essential that legislation should be done to empower him.
Felicitating newly-elected Pakistan origin Mayor of London Sadiq Khan on behalf of the entire nation, Ch Parvez Elahi said that he is the first Muslim in the history of Britain who has been elected to this post.
